ENVY TEAM NEED YOUR HELP AHEAD OF 3 LEGGED WALK
Allison Samuels supervisor at Envy The Broadway has organised a charity event in aid of supporting Hugs from Henry.
The Envy team are going to take part in a sponsored 3 legged 'walk' around Burrator Reservoir On Sunday 10th April.
Each stylist is going to try and raise £50+ each.
The Envy team are hoping that each client will support them in their quest, with a 50p or a £1 donation. Sponsorship forms in salons, all money raised will go to the charity.
While Henry underwent treatment his parents, Elsbeth and Michael, were forced to live away from home. Luckily Michael's place of work was incredibly supportive and Elsbeth was on maternity leave. However they met many families who weren’t so lucky and had little or no money as they were unable to work.
Many families were separated from each other, older siblings needed to attend school and some parents had to work. Hugs From Henry was started to support these families, to help when they need it most. That help could mean buying an iPad so the child can be entertained when forced to spend weeks or even months in a room, allowing them talk to families through Skype or email, or by giving families a holiday to give them memories they will never forget.
Mission statement: Hugs From Henry supports families affected by childhood cancer, neuroblastoma from diagnosis, through treatment and post.
Vision statement: The Hugs From Henry team aims to grow the charity to be able to support hundreds of families who are forced to deal with neuroblastoma across the United Kingdom.
