THE glamour of the hairdressing salon will be swapped for combats when staff of a Bury St Edmunds salon take to the streets for next month’s Girls’ Night Out.
Eleven styslists and beauticians and eight clients from Natasha’s in Risbygate Street will be stepping out with hundreds of other women raising money for St Nicholas Hospice Care on the evening of Saturday, September 17.
Starting at 8pm on Angel Hill this year, the event will feature two different walks, one of 11.2 miles around the town and another of six miles and TV presenter Becky Jago will be joining the pyjama-clad participants.
For Natasha, the event will have an added poignancy as her father Roger Hobbs died after suffering cancer six years ago.
She said: “The work team here are all a bit of a family and we have worked together for years. We also hang out together so it seemed like a good idea.”
The team are going Army style, wearing the GNO T-shirt, camouflage-style pyjama bottoms and Army slippers.
Natasha’s will also have a large bucket in the salon for customers to make donations and staff to donate tips towards the work of the hospice.
This is the third year the event has been run and last year it raised £90,000.
