Great Lengths goes for a Great Run

Great Lengths kicks off 2021 on a positive note by working as a team to raise £1,000 for The Little Princess Trust. How? By going for… a run!

Run, team!

The Great Lengths team from across the business is made up of CEO Joscelin McCourt, Brand Director Chris King, Marketing Executive Abi Lightowler, Operations Manager Georgia Durkin, Sales Executive Nyree Robinson-Grant, Education and Creative Manager Louise Jenkins and Finance Director Andrea Turner. The motivated bunch is taking part in the Great Run SO21 January Accumulator Challenge. This challenge is to complete 21 activities of any distance in January; however, the team is going the extra mile. Specifically, an extra 500 miles! Whatever weather West Yorkshire throws at them the team are committed to a daily dose of activity to meet this worthy target: the ambitious 500 mile goal. Go, team!

A meaningful partnership

The Little Princess Trust, who have been partnered with Great Lengths for more than five years, provides free real hair wigs to children and young people with medical hair loss. Since 2016, the organisation has also supported the development of less aggressive and less toxic cancer treatments by funding academics and organisations involved in researching the causes of paediatric cancer. Find out more about this partnership by listening to our podcast HERE.

Joscelin McCourt, CEO of Great Lengths UK and Ireland, says: “We wanted to start 2021 in the most upbeat way possible by raising both money and awareness for The Little Princess Trust, an incredible charity that we are so proud to work so closely with.  The money raised will be used by the charity to fund vital research into finding better treatments for childhood cancers.”

The donation scheme is currently available in more than 1,500 Great Lengths salons across the UK & Ireland, with more than 2500 bundles of Great Lengths hair extensions donated to the charity to date.
