Some of the great advocates of the hair & beauty industry seem to have been cooking up a storm in the kitchen. The Hair & Beauty Charity has just released an e-cookbook filled with delicious, mouth watering recipes to raise money and awareness of the charity.
Hair & Beauty Charity has been helping hair and beauty professionals who have been affected by illness, disability, bereavement, homelessness, domestic violence, or financial hardship since 1836. The e-cookbook will help raise funds to ensure the charity can continue helping those in financial need. During COVID-19, the charity has become a lifeline for a tremendous number of families and individuals, and it saw an increase of over 227% for requests for financial support during the past year alone.
Whether you’re a sweet or savoury person, you can expect to find a range of recipes to suit your palette. The e-cookbook has 47 recipes from Experts across hair, beauty, barbering, nails, and makeup; with renowned names like Sam McKnight, Errol Douglas MBE, Ruby Hammer MBE, Richard Ward, Nichola Joss, Andrew Barton, Marian Newman, Lisa Potter-Dixon, Josh Wood, Daniel Sandler, Jonathan Andrew, Neil Moodie, James Read, Michael Douglas, Caroline Barnes, Jack Howard, Mark Woolley, Amy Katrianne, Charlotte Mensah, Alan Beak, Mark Hayes, and Adam Reed – to name a few!
“This e-cookbook was borne from an idea during the 3rd lockdown. Renowned hairdresser, Errol Douglas MBE posted an old image of a cookbook we created over 10 years ago and it got me thinking how much fun it would be to do it again. You won’t find any sourdough or banana breads that the first lockdown was known for, but there’s 50 recipes from easy to difficult to recreate. As a non-cook myself, I’m eager to try out a few of them and can’t thank the guest experts enough for donating their time, cooking, and photography skills for this great campaign,” explains President Samantha Grocutt, who coordinated the project.
“Our charity has been a lifeline for many in our profession over the years but 2020 and 2021 has thrown us into the spotlight as more and more people started to hear about what we do and how we help. We have had fantastic support from our sponsors, donors, and the industry but it’s important that we continue to be there for those in the industry who need financial assistance. Who knows how long the effects of these three lockdowns will have on our industry, so we need to keep pushing the charity awareness and this e-cookbook is a great way to bring a bit of lightness to what has been a really hard time for many,” concludes Samantha
