Business partners Jane Brown and Sue Austin held a festive fundraiser for Breast Cancer Research.

Jane and Sue who run Salon 27 Hairdressers in Horsendale Avenue, Nuthall, have hosted the fundraiser every year since 1997.

They bring out a 70 square grid, each containing a suggested fancy dress theme, and customers have to guess which theme staff have picked for their dressing up day.

For the first time since Jane and Sue began their charity initiative a gentleman customer, Harold Bales, selected the correct costume square, his choice of Cave Women, earning him wine, chocolates and a free haircut.

Mr Bales, a retired lecturer who was based at Basford Hall College and lives in Nuthall, praised the Salon 27 team for their on-going efforts for Breast Cancer Research.

“The ladies looked great in their leopard skin costumes, complete with bone necklaces and clubs,” he said,

“It is a fun way of raising money for the cause.”

Jane and Sue, who were backed in their efforts by colleagues Emma Cope and Amy Brown.

Jane said: “We love dressing up and in the past years we have appeared in costumes dressed as doctors and nurses, Robin Hoods, hula girls and Grecian goddesses.”

“By our efforts we have raised a considerable amount which has gone to help a brilliant cause, while having a good time in the process.”
