Events & fundraising

We are a national, independent registered charity and rely solely upon donations to continue our work. Our ability to continue to help, train, and provide information relies upon fundraising and sponsorship to support this programme. Without your help we would be unable to continue developing our network of salons that care, who provide such an important service to people suffering from hair loss.
