Hairdressing and hounds sponsored walk

Hooker & Young, the hairdressing duo that never does anything by halves, recently set up their hairdressing and hounds sponsored walk, in their bid to raise money for charities supporting these two areas The Hair and Beauty Charity and the Dogs Trust. 

This pioneering pets and people walk attracted 310 legs (50 dogs and 55 owners) and was held at Exhibition Park Newcastle raising £1193.  In a bid to raise extra funds the Hooker and Young team had also organised printed t-shirts reflecting the Hair & Beauty Charity colours of purple and sported pictures of either a British Bulldog or Great Dane with quiffs. Amazing!

Woof woof

Gary Hooker said: “The team and our amazing clients really entered into the spirit of the event, we had incredible support with the venue and we sold t-shirts that we had designed to raise extra funds.  Our area manager and mascot for the day even dressed up in a doggy body suit. It was great to do this, and we are going to make it an annual event for these two deserving charities that are close to our hearts.” Gary Hooker, Hooker & Young.
