We are very grateful to Regis and all their staff for supporting Stand Up To Cancer.
(PRWEB UK) 9 September 2014
By supporting Stand Up To Cancer, Regis Salon, Supercuts and Express Hair & Beauty by Regis located in Tesco stores will be uniting with doctors, nurses, scientists and celebrities to generate funds, raise awareness and bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.
Stand Up To Cancer is launching now and will build over the next few months culminating in a live TV fundraiser on Friday 17 October hosted by Davina McCall, Alan Carr and Dr Christian Jessen.
From September, salon teams nationwide will be raising money with their own creative events and fundraising initiatives. Selected Regis and Supercuts salon will also be collecting extra charity funds through credit and debit card donations, where customers can choose to donate when paying for their hair and beauty treatments.
Their fundraising will culminate with a week of activity in October, ahead of the TV show.
It will kick off with the stylists and teams at Regis head office joining the March On Cancer* events which will take place on Saturday 11th October across 15 cities across the UK.
Regis Salons and Supercuts will then be offering two exclusive Stand Up To Cancer hairstyles from Monday 13th to Friday 17th October, with 50 per cent of the price being donated to the campaign.
Jenny Smith, marketing manager at Regis Salon, said: “We are thrilled to be involved in such a great campaign for a very worthy cause. It’s fantastic to see our salon teams and everyone at head office coming together for March On Cancer or dreaming up their own creative ideas for fundraisers – we even have a brave pair skydiving for the cause.”
Caro Evans, Head of Fundraising for Stand Up To Cancer, said: “We are very grateful to Regis and all their staff for supporting Stand Up To Cancer. We hope people everywhere will follow their lead and start raising money to support life-saving research. We have the technology and the knowledge to conquer cancer; we just need the funds to turn it into real-life treatments. There are so many different ways to get involved. This is our chance to make history, please join us.”
Stand Up To Cancer took place for the first time in the UK in 2012 and raised £8 million for ground-breaking research.
