The Spoilt Hair Retreat in Wembley raised money for Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Inc. (CLCRF) by holding a ‘Kids Cuts for Cancer’ event on Sunday 17 September. The event was held in honour of Spoilt Hair Retreat’s owner, Elsa-Rene Mitchell’s 5-year-old cousin, Grace, who is battling leukaemia.
“She has endured the harsh treatments that come with battling her disease and the ongoing effects these treatments have on her body,” said Elsa-Rene.
There was a fantastic turnout of children and their parents on the day. The Spoilt hair team dressed in fancy dress (fairies, Princess Elsa, Batman, Star Wars characters and Dr Seuss) while they styled crazy haircuts for children and coloured their hair in bright colours like pink and blue. There was also a cake stall, balloons, laughter and lots of glitter!
By the end of the day, $2,250 was raised for the CLCRF to support child cancer research! What a fantastic result and the CLCRF want to thank Spoilt Hair Retreat for their passionate dedication in raising awareness and funds to help children with cancer.
