A HADLEIGH hair salon pulled out all the stops to raise money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

Staff at Cutter and Co, in the High Street, raised around £3,000 with a full day of events, including a raffle, collections and a sponsored hair waxing in the evening called “skin a butcher, peel a greengrocer”.

Salon manager Sharron Wilkinson said: “We had a really good time – it was great fun and we were all thoroughly shattered.

“We worked in our pyjamas and wellies, which proved horrifically uncomfortable.

“We also had a raffle going and we had street collections and businesses collecting, too.”

Charlie Phillips and Sam Ward, from the High Street’s Jolly Meat Company butchers, and Josh Partridge, from Partridge’s Farm Shop, volunteered to be waxed to raise extra cash for the cause, which is close to the salon staff’s hearts.

“Everybody that we speak to knows someone that has been affected by breast cancer,” said Mrs Wilkinson.

“If the little bit we have raised can go toward saving one life then that’s the job done.”

The staff are now waiting to hear whether they have won a competition by hair care company GHD to raise the most money.

If they have, Mrs Wilkinson said Cutter and Co would donate the £2,000 prize to Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
