Local salon inspires others to raise funds to treat frontline workers

A salon based in Holton-le-Clay has raised over £1,000 to help fund beauty and hair treatments for NHS frontline workers.

Working with their clients and the public, Beauty and Man at The Gate has so far raised £1,180 which will be used to fund treatments for NHS workers once the salon re-opens after the lockdown.

The salon closed its doors earlier in March in accordance with government guidelines but recognised that its clients wanted to be able to support frontline workers in the local community.

“We had a number of clients getting in touch asking if they could donate in some way, which was when we decided to run the campaign,” said Sam Beatty, who runs the salon with partner Paul.

“We have added an extra £5 for every £10 donated and we just can’t believe how kind people have been. We had reached £565 after just 24 hours, one client even donated £100.”

Other salons across the county have been inspired by Beauty and Man at The Gate and are now running their own similar campaigns to help raise funds for their local frontline staff.

“It’s fantastic that other salons are now doing this too, it’s great to know that there is something we can be doing to give back,” said Sam.
