So as many of you all know, myself and the team at Sands Resort Hotel spent the festive season raising well needed pennies for St Petroc’s Society, a very worthy charity who help single homeless people aged between 18 and 65+.
In the early stages of planning for this fundraising campaign my intention was to raise money and create awareness on the issue of homelessness. I can honestly say that I feel we have been able do those two things and so much more.
I was hoping to be able to raise £1000, so I am so thrilled that we managed to raise £1387.50.
We were also featured in the local papers, interviewed on Pirate FM, BBC Radio Cornwall and made it on to the BBC spotlight news on the evening of the main event. Allowing us to reach as many people as possible and highlight the on-going issue of homelessness.
I’m incredibly overwhelmed at the support I received from my work colleagues, who each took on responsibilities that allowed us to create and develop such a successful fundraising campaign. I wouldn’t have been able to make this happen without them.
I cannot thank my clients and members of the public enough, who have amazed me with their generosity. Whether you made a financial donation, took part in our raffle or donated unwanted clothes to our clothing bin. Every single bit helped, thank you so much.
Reflecting back, I feel that I have learnt so much. I had no idea how much St Petroc’s helped people in need. Not only do they help to house their clients, they offer food in their drop-in centres, they offer warm clothing and offer emotional support.
It was an absolute pleasure spending a day in December offerig haircuts for those in need. I can honestly say that I got to meet some lovely genuine souls. It was intriguing and heart breaking hearing their stories. I was astonished how strong these folk are who with the help of St Petroc’s are turning their lives around and are on the road to recovery.
Mark (the area outreach worker for St Petroc’s) and myself were unsure of how the day would go. But the general feedback was that our guests thoroughly enjoyed the day and felt they got to escape reality, relax and unwind.
It was such a good feeling giving something back to people who needed it. The whole experience really opened my eyes to how we often take the basic things in life for granted, you know having a home, food in the cupboards and family that love us.
If there’s one thing that I have learnt from the fundraising campaign is that, offering your smile and giving one’s time and attention to someone in need can really go along way and make a massive difference to someone’s day.
As much as the money will enable St Petroc’s to help people in need in many ways. I feel it is the shift in our attitudes that will really make a difference.
Models are required for colouring and cutting!
It doesn’t always need to be crazy, bright colours as we are trying to produce a range of images for marketing purposes. To be the right model for us the following must apply,
• You must be open to ideas and willing to try new things.
• You must be happy to have your photo taken for marketing purposes.

In return we will give you 75% off and a gorgeous new look, that will help inspire others through our social media and website.
So if you’ve got a bit of spare time on your hands and your feeling like you need a change, let us get creative and learn something new.

Helping the Homeless in Cornwall
I`m super excited to let you all know that over the festive season myself and the team at Sands Resort Hotel will be fundraising to help the homeless in Cornwall. All funds raised will be donated to St Petroc’s Society, a Cornish charity which works with single homeless people in Cornwall.
Why I want to do this…
I have been asked by many of my clients and friends why I have chosen to fundraise and help people that need this charity.
I’m not going to lie, I haven’t always felt compassionate about homelessness. Once upon a time it would be fair to say I didn’t really give them a spare thought. I also found them incredibly intimidating whilst walking past them and seeing them sat or laid in a doorway covered in cardboard and sleeping bags.
It wasn’t until I watched a documentary on the BBC a few years ago called ‘Famous, Rich and Homeless’ that I realised how incredibly tough, lonely and demoralising being in this situation is for people, and how easy it is for lucky people like you and I to turn our noses up and assume they are there down to their own life choices.
Please feel free to click on the link that takes you to the page about the programme and features the episodes that you can watch, hopefully it will touch you in the same way it did me.
So, here’s what me, the girls in the salon and the team at Sands Resort Hotel are doing to help raise awareness on what can sometimes be considered a dark area, and hopefully raise some pennies for the amazing charity St Petroc’s.
Haircuts for the homeless
On Sunday 3rd December I will be opening the salon and with the help of Ros and Caroline we are inviting the homeless to come and have a free haircut, a nice hot chocolate and a mince pie, and some yummy turkey and cranberry rolls kindly supplied by the kitchen at Sands Resort Hotel.
The very talented musician Tommy Armstrong will be playing Christmas songs on his guitar to entertain us all.
Mark, the outreach worker for St Petroc’s, will be bringing clients to us on the day from various stage one housing accommodations throughout North Cornwall.
People living in these conditions are still considered homeless but have taken the brave steps to better their lives and for some means quitting their addictions to alcohol / illegal substances, as under no circumstances is anyone allowed to be living in this type of accommodation whilst using un-prescribed drugs or under the influence of alcohol.
The Grand Prize Draw Raffle
Me and the girlies in the spa have made two amazing Christmas hampers with the best goodies in. I wish I could enter myself!!! Both hampers include
In the run up to Christmas we will be taking clothing donations from the public. We are looking for the following items, both male and female.
These items would greatly be appreciated and can make a big difference to so many individuals.
I’m donating my tips
From the 1st December until we close on the 23rd of December I will be donating all of my tips to St Petroc’s Society, so to all my gorgeous clients, get tipping, it’s for a really good cause xxx
Local Giving page
We have set up a Local Giving page, where you can make donations for an amount of your choice. All money raised will be going to St Petroc’s Society.
Here the link to the page: https://localgiving.org/fundraising/helping-homeless-cornwall/
Obviously, we would like to raise as much money as we can for a worthy cause.
However, a big driving force for me wanting to carry out a fundraising campaign for homelessness, is to raise awareness about the people in our society that have no home, no family support, no job, mental health issues and possibly battling addiction with alcohol and illegal substances.
It’s easy for people like us to judge and get on with our busy lives, but none of us know their stories and why they are homeless.
I feel that it is our duty as human beings to try our best to help one another and be grateful for the things in our lives that we take for granted. Such as a roof over our heads, hot water, heating, beds to sleep in, family that love us, food in our fridge, running water, the list is endless.
Some people might feel that certain individuals are addicts who won’t help themselves. Please let me ask you a question: “if you were stripped of a place to call home, had no money, no job, no family or friends, how would you cope?”
Don’t judge, let’s change our attitudes and help one another. Next time you see a homeless person on the street, make eye contact, give them a smile, or even stop and say ‘hi’. Let’s help by making them feel they are part of Society.
And finally, as lovely as it is that we are all pulling together to help those in need over the festive period. I’d like to stress that this is a charity that helps people all year round. These are individuals that need help and support from us to get their lives back together.
As a way of showing continued support to those in need, I will be working with St Petroc’s and be offering free haircuts for those that have the opportunity of permanent housing or a job interview.
I feel this way I can help build their confidence and help them feel part of society. After all we all know a good haircut can make all the difference to one’s self esteem!
Thank you so much for your support!!
