Thanks to all our amazing clients and friends, our 10 Year Anniversary charity night and 10 Years Younger makeover was a massive success
Barbara Rouse was overwhelmed by the whole 10 years younger makeover experience, which was timed perfectly as Barbara has just celebrated her birthday and said it the best birthday present she’s ever had! There wasn’t a dry eye at the event whilst Barbara told us how much it meant to her to get recognition for all the voluntary work she has done over the years in the Bootle community, the place she loves!
Pete Reynolds also gave an inspiring speech about his battle to regain his health after his liver transplant and how it wasn’t an option not to give something back. It was the day after surgery whilst he was in his hospital bed that he came up with idea to do a series of challenges over a 12 month period, including at least 6 mammoth cycles and the Lake Windermere Great North swim. He Joked of still being delusional on the drugs from the operation but he stuck to his promise and after months of serious training whist battling with his health he has already cycled two challenges, the 100 mile Birmingham Velo and the 60 mile Manchester to Blackpool midnight cycle. His next challenge is going to be a 140 mile coast to coast cycle in February, from Whitehaven in the Lake District going to Sunderland in the North East. A full list of Pete’s challengers sponsored by Harrison Hair Studio can be found on his website www.teamreynolds.co.uk
We had a count yesterday after the event and we managed to raise £1211.75 which we are ecstatic about as we where aiming for £500 but everyone in the local community came together to show their support for Barbara and Pete, and we smashed it!
All of this wouldn’t of been possible without the hard work from all our staff and with the help from our friends Liz Ellis Cosmetics (Huyton), Louise Welsh Makeup (Maghull), Marks & Spencer’s (Aintree) and our very own Tanya who did amazing work with Barbara for the 10 years younger makeover. Plus all the donations and amazing raffle prizes from L’Oreal Pro UK, Azure Dental (Formby), Grosvenor Digitat (Bootle), L20 Restaurant (Bootle), HHS Luxury Travel (Bootle), GHD UK and Pioneer Fitness (Bootle) who were all so generous. We had amazing live music from Ted Russet who’s a music student at LIPA, also wonderful food and drink from Harrison’s Tea Room.
