Hairdressers blown away

HAIRDRESSERS were blown away by public support for a charity fund-raising event.

David Dawson and Brittany Jay, who run Planet Salon in Newgate Street, Morpeth, gave up their Sunday to organise a full day of cut and blow dries in aid of cancer charity.

It also included cheese and wine for customers.

A total of £300 was collected, which will go to the Asda Tickled Pink campaign, supporting Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Campaign.

Mr Dawson said: “It was wonderful. A lot of local people and regular customers came in during the day and donated very generously.

“It was a very successful day and I want to say a big thank-you to all the people who came in to support it.”
