“We wanted to do something challenging to highlight the launch of this great campaign. It was a great experience and brilliant to have the support of so many salons behind us. Looking forward to next year already”
On June 25th Sarah and Leeanne from Irish Hairdressers International Magazine endured a challenging 182km 1 day cycle from Dublin to Belfast which officially launched the Rapunzel Foundation ‘Tips for a Day’ campaign.
The campaign ‘tips for a day’ highlights and supports the fantastic ongoing work of the Rapunzel Foundation since Anna Furlong from New Ross founded the charity in 2010.
‘Tips for a Day’ campaign involved hair salons nationwide endorsing the campaign and encouraging their staff members to donate one day gratuity tips to the Rapunzel Foundation.
