Staff at ‘Style Counsel’ hairstylists – on Edleston Road in Crewe have once again raised a generous amount of money for the local branch of a cancer charity.
Staff members Sophie Wilson and Jess Ordidge recently scaled Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales, at an elevation of 1,085 metres above sea level, and the highest point in the British Isles outside the Scottish Highlands.
On the day of their climb, Sophie and Jess left Crewe at 4:30am and during one of the hottest days this year made it to the summit in four hours, before returning to Crewe on the same day at 7:30pm. They raised a fantastic £900 for Crewe & Nantwich Cancer Research UK Group.
Style Counsel have been raising money for Crewe & Nantwich Cancer Research UK Group for the past thirty years. During this period, they have raised over £5,000 towards life-saving research to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.
Caron Hull, Style Counsel owner, said: “Cancer Research is close to all of our hearts, we have all lost family members to cancer and also some clients. One of our own members of staff was diagnosed with a brain tumour last year and sadly had to leave work, she is currently undergoing treatment. I think the reason so many of our wonderful clients get involved and are so generous is because this disease does affect so many people, so a big thank you to all that have made donations. A big thank you to Sophie and Jess for their amazing achievement on their day off – we’re very proud of them.”
John Pass, Crewe & Nantwich Cancer Research UK Group, said: “Crewe and Nantwich Cancer Research UK Fundraising Group are extremely grateful for Style Counsel’s support – fund raising has been very difficult this year due to Covid 19 restrictions and every pound raised is vital to help us achieve our goal: to beat Cancer sooner.”
