The local Glevum Voluntary Group of Diabetes UK has been presented with a cheque for more than £1,200, thanks to the fund-raising efforts of a Bristol Road hairdressing salon. Brother and sister team Daniel Gray and Anita Dallimore raised a staggering £1,222.30 for the group by completing a 10-kilometre run, a hair grip contest, and a half-price bank holiday open day.

Daniel and Anita, along with stylist Briony Overthrow, wanted to mark the tenth anniversary of the opening of Shades Hair Design on Bristol Road, Gloucester, by giving something back to the community. Glevum chair Margaret Skinner said:

“We are very grateful to Shades Hair Design for the magnificent effort and for all the hard work that goes in to all this fund raising. This is the largest single donation that our group has received to date, and we thank the team for all that they have done”.

“The funds will help towards the purchase of a projector for our meetings and to support the work of the group, we always welcome new people to the group, and they don’t need to be members of Diabetes UK, and of course admission is free”

The next group meeting will be on September 14th, when a talk will be given about the work of The Samaritans.

Non-members welcome to join us at all meetings.
