Haircuts will soon be on offer for night owls and early birds as Head Stylist at hair salon Head Kandy, Ryan Fortey, holds a 24-hour ‘Cutathon’ in aid of local medical charity Cobalt.

From 9am on Sunday 28th April to 9am on Monday 29th April, customers will be able to get cuts and styling with Ryan, who has run the sponsored event for over 18 years following the loss of his mother and father to cancer. Clients will pay the normal price for their hair, but all proceeds will be donated to the charity.

Ryan, who also owns the salon, said: “Sadly, everyone knows someone touched by cancer. I want to do my bit to raise vital funds for Cobalt. I believe in the incredible work that they do.

“To book an appointment with me, either pop into the salon or call 01452 422262. I’ll have sponsorship forms available if you just wish to donate. Appointments get booked up fast so get in touch soon”.

Kirsty Bradbury, Fundraising Engagement Officer at Cobalt said: “Each year Ryan raises money for Cobalt in memory of his mother.

“Sadly, Ryan lost his father last year and this year’s Cutathon will therefore be in honour of both his parents, a wonderful tribute to them both. The support Ryan receives from his customers is heart-warming; please help if you can by booking an appointment on April 28th.”

Head Kandy is located on The Barge Arm East, Gloucester Docks.
