Charity hair cuts in Barrow under way to help raise vital funds for Ulverston charity
Last updated at 10:50, Friday, 18 October 2013
AN MP, a newspaper editor, a mayor and a Barrow AFC legend are among Barrow personalities taking part in a charity hair cut today.
Louise Woodburn is chopping and cutting her way through the personalities to help raise vital funds for St Mary's Hospice.
Mrs Woodburn is not charging for the haircuts and is instead asking customers to make a donation to the charity.
MP John Woodcock, Evening Mail editor and publisher Jonathan Lee, former AFC star Neil Doherty and Councillor Colin Thomson will all take to her seat, with more than 15 others also confirmed.
As part of the Hair for Hospices Day, Mrs Woodburn started at 8.15am and will cut until closing time.
The Crellin Street business is part of the hospice’s Club 25 corporate scheme to raise at least £1,000 in 12 months to celebrate the charity’s 25th anniversary.
Mrs Woodburn said: “The hospice is all funded by volunteers. We’ve all got to pull together to make sure they get the care that they need. Barrow is such a giving town anyway, so if I can just donate that day, it’s the least I can do.
“With working in the shop, you hear from people’s family and friends – there’s always somebody who’s using the hospice.”
Mrs Woodburn, of Furness Park Road, Barrow, says people are welcome to turn up and she will fit them in.
