A BIT OF A DO


Reading Time: 2 minutes

OK so we’re not bragging but we’ve completed 8 half marathons, climbed 3 peaks and hosted countless Make Time For Tea parties for Eve! Most recently we raised *an unbelievable* £7,625.87 at our Headlam Hall Afternoon Tea party… bringing our total fundraising to £19,276.03. No. Words. Needed. Here.

Beauty Manager Sue organised and hosted the event along with the support of the whole team. Sue says: “I’m humbled by the generosity and support of customers, friends and families who came to support the event – we’ve exceeded our expectations. Thank you all who came and supported us.”

Salon owner Anna says: “What an amazing Saks4Eve journey and it’s not over yet – the commitment from all of the team has been truly inspirational and I am extremely proud of all of their hard work!”

Big shout to team members Charlotte, Katie, Laura, Emma J, Emma K, Skye, Toni, Ellie and Millie who all gladly gave up their Sunday to work the event and helped beg and collect over 100 raffle prizes for the day, along with 12 silent auction prizes!

RED SEPTEMBER

In September, Eve puts a big call out asking women to Go Red for the right reasons as too many women go red with embarrassment because they don’t want to talk about gynae health. Wear red. Chat openly. Raise awareness. Raise funds for ground-breaking medical research.

As usual, Saks salons said HELLA YES to that. Our latest fundraising activities, including our latest do, puts the Saks4Eve contribution at over £160k.

Another public cervix announcement on behalf of our charity partner, The Eve Appeal. Make the Vulva Vow. It’s simple. All you need to know is the difference between a vulva and vagina. And you need to use the word vulva openly and without shame, because vulva – like vagina – is NOT a dirty word…

THE VULVA IS THE EXTERNAL FEMALE GENITALIA THAT SURROUND THE OPENING TO THE VAGINA.
