Hair & Beauty Charity Golf Day Triumphs Despite Rain, Raising £6,864.75

The Hair & Beauty Charity (H&BC) and Hair & Beauty Suppliers Association (HBSA) is delighted to announce the success of its annual Charity Golf Day, which took place recently at Hellidon Lakes Golf Resort, raising an impressive £6,864.75.

The event featured a shotgun start, bringing together 13 teams, including esteemed industry names such as Alan Howard, Kao Salon Division, Salon Distribution Concepts, The Gallery, Wella Professionals, L’Oreal Professionnel Paris, Schwarzkopf Professional, Procare, Barkers, Revlon Professional and the HBSA. Additionally, two teams comprised individual players representing Vish, Leaf Scissors, Salon Vision, Professional Beauty Group, Salonology, Get Timely and CDC Accounting. This competitive bunch had a great day, despite the weather, which saw monumental rain showers throughout the day.

Once dried off, golfers and guests enjoyed dinner where four prestigious awards were presented:

  • Best Individual sponsored by Sienna X – awarded to Chris Barker of Barkers
  • Best Team sponsored by Schwarzkopf Professional in memory of Peter Belcher –Kao Salon Division
  • Longest Drive sponsored by Kao Salon Division presented to Paul Brooks of Alan Howard
  • Nearest The Pin sponsored by Wella Professionals and awarded to Steve Jarrett of The Gallery

And then the fun carried on with an auction featuring a huge collection of wines, two tickets to a home game at Chelsea and a round of golf. With a raffle and other fundraising opportunities, a fantastic amount was raised.

Natalie Booker, Hair & Beauty Charity manager said: “We are thrilled with the turnout and the spirit displayed by everyone despite the rainy weather. The generosity and support from our sponsors, teams and individual players are what make events like these possible, enabling us to continue our vital work within the hair and beauty communities.”

The day’s success was supported by numerous sponsors. Kao Salon Division generously sponsored the dinner, while the awards were sponsored by Sienna X, Schwarzkopf Professional and Wella Professionals. Hole sponsors included Phillip Rogers (H&BC Chairman), Vish, Rainbow Room International, AJC93, Essence PR, The Gallery, Salonology, Gerrards International, Olivia Garden and Procare.

Mark your calendars for next year’s Charity Golf Day set to take place on Tuesday 10th June at a new championship venue in a move that promises to elevate the competition and the stakes for our fundraising efforts.

The Hair & Beauty Charity committee meets monthly to discuss applications to decide on the best support to provide and in 2023, hundreds of applications were received.

The Charity is funded purely from within our industry, through corporate sponsorship and salon/individual contributions via regular monthly subscriptions or fundraising activities.
