Taking to the Stage for Childhood Eye Cancer at Hair UK

Taking to the Stage for Childhood Eye Cancer at Hair UK

On the 20th & 21st May at the NEC, Birmingham, some of the top names in UK hairdressing will be giving up their time at Hair UK and Barber UK, to help fight childhood eye cancer.

The Hair and Barber Stages are being arranged to raise funds for The Childhood Eye Cancer Trust (CHECT), a charity dedicated to supporting families affected by retinoblastoma (Rb), a rare form of eye cancer that affects young children.

Amongst the names already committed to perform demonstrations on the CHECT Hair Stage, are Anne Veck, Ben Brown, Errol Douglas MBE, Karine Jackson and Lewis Moore. There will also be support from industry leading companies such as Affinage, Unite and Barclay Wolf - a real line up of talent and creative excellence!

Alison Brightwell, CHECT Ambassador and Hairdressing Trainer, who had an eye removed due to Rb said, “This year's show is going to be an amazing event at Hair UK. I can't express the gratitude I feel towards all the hairdressers who have kindly given up their time to help us raise awareness for CHECT. For all of these talented artists to come together at one event for such a great cause is overwhelming and I really can't thank them enough. This will be a date to remember.”
