#StyleAgainstCancer is being supported by celebrity hairstylist George Northwood and a host of celebrity names. This new initiative raises vital funds for Children with Cancer UK, one of the leading national childhood cancer research charities
For the first time in its history, Children with Cancer UK is teaming up with hair salons across the country to raise essential funds for families facing a childhood cancer diagnosis. This collaboration gives you the chance to get your hair styled to perfection, whilst helping to raise vital funds for the charity – with 10 families receiving a childhood cancer diagnosis every day in the UK.
Supported by Claudia Winkleman and a host of other celebrity names, to be revealed, Style Against Cancer is taking place from 2nd October 2023 with Friday the 6th October being the key #StyleAgainstCancer online event day.
You can play your part in helping hair salons to raise money for Children with Cancer UK by using a QR code from the comfort of the salon chair to donate to your chosen hairdresser’s Just Giving page. The funds raised through Style Against Cancer will go towards research into the development of kinder, less toxic treatments for this disease.
George Northwood said: “I’m thrilled to support this new initiative from Children with Cancer UK as we all know the devastating impact this disease has on everyone. Stylists and their clients can enjoy a day of fun whilst raising crucial awareness.”
Jo Elvin, CEO at Children with Cancer UK, said: “Hairdressers of Britain are with us through it all. From those big life moments to the polite summer holiday chat, the conversations that happen in their chairs reaches every community. This is why we are asking salons and barbershops to support Style Against Cancer and help our mission of a world where every child survives cancer.”
