Salon cash for quake victims

A SUDBURY hair salon has raised £650 for the victims of the Japanese earthquake.

Staff at Couture Creative Hair Design in North Street organised a raffle and enlisted the help of five brave volunteers who were sponsored to have their chests waxed on Friday.

Money raised will go to the Japanese Red Cross, as manager Caroline Green has an aunt and grandmother living in Tokyo.

Ann-Marie Withey, salon owner, said: “The guys taking part were really good sports, as the waxing would have been quite painful.

“We are delighted with the amount raised and hope it will go some way to help the people of Japan.”
