Hairdressing group complete 100km walk

Stylists from the Westrow hairdressing group have completed a 100-kilometre walk, raising over £6000 for charity.

The Westrow team walked for three consecutive days via all nine Westrow salons to raise funds for The Principle Trust, a Skipton based children’s charity.

Dubbed The Great Westrow Walk, the event has already raised £6450 which will fund holidays for sixteen families from the Yorkshire region.

The walkers, aged 18 to 59 years, left the Westrow salon in Skipton on Friday 24 June, calling at branches in Ilkley, Bingley, Leeds city centre (two salons), Westpark, Roundhay and Wetherby, before reaching the finish line at the Harrogate salon on Sunday afternoon.

Marc Westerman one of the founders of Westrow and a patron of The Principle Trust, said:

“We want to thank everyone who supported this event; it was a fantastic way to celebrate Westrow’s 35th anniversary. Every penny raised will help to fund much-needed respite holidays for families across Yorkshire”
