THE memory of a popular, well-known Dingwall man will be honoured this weekend when a local hairdresser throws open its doors for a special fundraiser to benefit Highland Hospice.
Scizzor Sisters in the town’s Tulloch Street has generously agreed to waive its usual haircut charges on Saturday to boost the coffers of the charity, which relies on public support for its highly valued service.
The effort has been inspired by the late Donnie Donaldson who passed away just a fortnight ago after a battle with liver cancer.
His daughter Jillian Jack, who owns the business along with Haley Rae and Mel Macivor, has been helped by staff members and well-wishers in putting together a fundraising day which will include trims, nail decoration, a raffle and face-painting.
She said: “The proceeds of all walk-in cuts between 10am and 4pm on Saturday will go to Highland Hospice. Dad passed away from liver cancer but he was still alive when we started planning this.
“He was very well known in Dingwall. As well as the cuts we’ll have some other events and are expecting a visit from the Highland Hospice mascot, Bobby the Bee. We’ve got a few people helping out so hope we can raise a bit of cash for the hospice. We’ve also got plans for a charity ball at Strathpeffer Pavilion in March next year.”
The salon has been open for around five-and-a-half years and has gone from strength to strength in that time.
