De Lacy spa will be supporting the ‘Stand up to Cancer’ campaign which will be on channel 4 on the 19 October 2012 by offering mini treatments at just £5 donations.
The salon will open it doors this Sunday 21st October between 10am and 3pm and you will be able to book from a choice of back massage, file/polish, reflexology, blow dry and hair curl. You can have as many treatments as you wish. All the money that is made on the day will be given to the charity.
Unfortunately the salon girls have been effected by cancer over the past few years and wanted to help in any way they could. By putting their skills to a good cause seem as good as any.
“We have all been touched by cancer in some way. In addition to the treatments on offer throughout the day, there we also have local girl Stacey Turner who will be shaving her hair off for this amazing cause.”
“Please come and support us by booking treatments, sponsoring Stacey or just popping in to give a donation.”
“We will also be serving tea, coffee and hot chocolate for a donation so if you are passing and fancy a drink please come in!’
Stacey is looking for as much sponsor money as possible for the day.
Stacey said “I am raising money for Stand Up To Cancer by shaving my head which may seem a bit extreme but here is why.”
“Statistically everyone is likely to know of one person in their life time who has or will suffer with cancer whether it be a neighbour, acquaintance or work colleague but for some it hits closer to home a friend or family member.”
“My Granny Coates got cancer when I was young and I know how much it broke my Dads heart for us not to have had the chance to meet her, my great auntie Dorrie developed Brest cancer and although she survived she did have to have both breasts removed which left her feeling insecure and less of a woman.”
“You know they say things happen in 3s well going on two years ago now my farther in-law was diagnosed with prostate cancer and due to his heart condition he cannot be treated. My father in-law went to get checked after one of his brothers passed away due to prostate cancer and him along with another brother were diagnosed, As a result my husband will have to be checked regularly to catch it early if he ever gets it.”
“All of this was a big wake up call for me and I knew I had to do something. During my time of pondering one of the parents from Educare Nursery where I work had shaved her head for charity and I knew that was how I would make a change. It’s the worst feeling in the world to feel helpless when a loved one is suffering so now it’s my time to help!”
