Salon staff support World AIDS Day

STAFF at Re-Invention hair salon in Louth have re-invented themselves to mark World AIDS Day.

Re-Invention owner Jak Bakewell and his team felt strongly about supporting such a worthy cause and decided to dress in red for the occasion - and donate all of their daily takings to the cause.

This amount totalled to £468, and all of the money will be donated to the Terrence Higgins Trust.

Mr Bakewell said: “I feel it is very important to publicise this day as AIDS appears to be a forgotten cause, especially in this area.

“We have been supporting this cause for the last the three years running as it’s something all of us at Re-Invention feel strongly about.”

Jak has also arranged to work alongside Monks’ Dyke Technology College, who have agreed to take part in a non-uniform day to support the cause, and will be raising more awareness about AIDS shortly in the school assemblies.
