Early in 2015 we launched a two year partnership with the UK’s leading hair and beauty salon group, Saks Hair & Beauty.
Saks is committed to raising big funds for our cause. They’re also raising awareness of women’s cancers by using the time that stylists and therapists spend with customers to talk about the often taboo and too-little talked about subject – gynaecological cancers. Now four years later, and Saks has pledged to raise a phenomenal £250,000.
The initial two year partnership has been absolutely amazing, and now in its fourth year, has seen Saks continue to smash through their targets, raising over £150,000 to date. Through a combination of fantastic events in and out of the salon, as well as mammoth sporting challenges, Saks is one of Eve’s most committed partners.
Athena Lamnisos, CEO of The Eve Appeal, said: “Target smashing Team Saks you have done it again! You’ve reached an incredible milestone passing the £150k mark. We are so thrilled to have you as our brilliant charity partner. The enthusiasm, commitment and support that you’ve given to prevent women’s cancers with life-saving research makes such a difference. The conversations you have with your customers are vital and research shows that talking openly about signs and symptoms is a powerful tool in making sure that these cancers are diagnosed earlier. We can’t wait to see what you’ve got planned. The biggest thank you from all at Eve – staff, volunteers, trustees, researchers and of course, the women affected by these cancers and their loved ones.”
At the heart of everything that Saks do is their desire to transform the way women look and feel. Their big objective is to show just how much they care about women by supporting The Eve Appeal!
