A March hair salon has been ‘overwhelmed’ by the town’s response to its charity event. 

Staff at Spike and Violet hair studio on 31 High Street held the event on October 1, and have raised £400 for Macmillan Cancer Support. 

The salon chose the theme of a Mad Hatter's tea party inspired by the film Alice in Wonderland. 

Visitors on the day could choose from a selection of cupcakes and take part in a tombola raffle where the prizes on offer were donated from local businesses around the town. 

The salon’s second year apprentice, Beth Munden, organised the event, and her manager Victoria Viles has nothing but praise for her.
