A SALON in Aston Fields has chosen Primrose Hospice as its first ever 'charity of the year'.

LK Hair, based on New Road, will support the Bromsgrove hospice throughout the year with a series of fundraising ideas and activities.

Louise Hughes and Karen Grove from the salon said: “We are delighted to be supporting Primrose Hospice as our Charity of the Year.

"Many of our clients know just what a fantastic charity it is and have personal experience of their amazing work.

"Primrose rely on donations and volunteers to provide this support and all of us at LK Hair are looking forward to working with them throughout the year.”

Anna Wilson, corporate and community fundraiser at the hospice, said: “We are really excited to have the support from LK Hair and enjoyed showing them around the hospice.

"One of the ways in which they are going to be supporting is by spending time with our Gals Group doing their hair."

The hospice provides support to patients and their carers with life-limiting illnesses across Bromsgrove and the county.
