A BEAUTY salon will make Wearsiders look good for the party season in aid of a national fund-raising drive.
Staff at Pure Bliss, in Sea Road, Fulwell, have pledged to support ITV’s Text Santa, a new show to raise awareness and money for those most vulnerable during the festive period.
For each gift voucher bought at the salon over Christmas, customers can opt to pay £2 for a gift box, the proceeds of which will be donated to the cause.
Owner Lisa Seferi said: “We’re so fortunate and kids these days are spoilt, so I think the campaign is an amazing way of helping people less fortunate.”
Funds raised by the Text Santa shows will be divided between Carers UK, Crisis UK, Samaritans, Help the Hospices, WRVS, and four charities raising money for children’s hospitals.
They are Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, Helping Hand Charity, The Noah’s Ark Appeal and the Yorkhill Children’s Foundation.
