Banking on beauty to aid local hospital

Published on 11 February 2016

A chance to try out a range of beauty treatments and help Bedford Hospital Charity at the same time is being held on March 10th.

Hosted at 5th Avenue salon in Howard Street, the event will give people of all ages a fun way towards doing good and looking great.

The idea came from Mel Alfieri who is also running the London Marathon and organising a range of events to support the Bedford Hospital Charity. 

Mel, a Business Manager at Barclays Bedford said: “Alongside our ‘5 Million Young Futures’ commitment, Barclays has a fantastic community investment programme that encourages employees to get involved in the causes we care about.  It’s about giving back our skills, time and energy to support our local communities, and I am doing just that by raising funds through a series of events for Bedford Hospital, which will be fund-matched by Barclays.

“I am so pleased that Kerry Cash and team at 5th Avenue have offered their time and expertise to help. The more people who come along the more we can raise for a worthy local cause.”

Anyone interested in booking a treatment from 4pm until early evening on Thursday 10th March can book 15 minute treatments for £5 and 25 minute treatments for £10 via Mel Alfieri on 07775 540906

RAFFLE tickets will be on sale at £5 with prizes from Michael R. Peters, Rice Thai, Indian Summer restaurant, Adrian Bullers Photography and more.
