Salons, schools, homes and offices across the country will celebrate ‘bad hair’ on 28 February to raise vital funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity. Bad Hair Day invites staff, customers, friends and family to sport seriously bad hair dos as part of the charity’s HAIRraising appeal.
The HAIRraising appeal brings together members of the UK hairdressing community in support of Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity. Founded by John Frieda in 2010, the appeal has already reached its original target of raising £1 million towards new operating theatres at the hospital and now aims to raise a further £1 million towards a new Respiratory Unit.
The unit will provide more comfort and privacy for families, including space for parents to sleep by their child’s bedside overnight, and a high dependency unit will allow parents and carers to rest in comfort throughout the day and also provide space for medical equipment.
Hayley Richardson, Senior Fundraising Executive at Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity said: “We’re encouraging people in salons, offices and schools up and down the country, to do something daring to their hair on 28 February. Whether you sport an ‘80s perm or a ‘70s mullet, you’ll be raising vital funds for the hospital’s new Respiratory Unit, which will make a real difference for patients and families”
