Saturday 2nd September saw the sun shining for the staff, clients and friends of dlo hairdressers in Madrid Road Guildford. The late afternoon sunshine helped DLO’s birthday party go with a bang.
Many clients, friends and supporters turned up to wish dlo a very Happy 1st Birthday and the halow project were delighted to be there too. Anne Milton local MP for Guildford joined in with the party celebrations and officially opened the salon with the cutting of a ribbon. Amy & David Lopez (co-owners of DLO) wanted to give something back to their community and they decided to run a raffle all in aid of the halow project alongside their Birthday celebrations. Raffle tickets were sold throughout the month of August and at the Birthday Party the raffle was drawn. Over £700 was raised through the raffle. “This such and amazing amount of money to raise through a raffle, we are very grateful for all the support dlo have given us and we are very much looking forward to continuing our relationship with them.” Said Diane Savage Community & Events Fundraiser, halow project. Diane was referring to the up and coming hairdressing work experience that DLO will be running in September for some of our halow young people. This is a further development of the halow projects’ Disability Works Campaign.
