Joe is the inspirational little boy who touched people's lives around the country and beyond. His website, www.joeway.co.uk has been set up to tell his story, raise awareness of his conditions, and to help raise money.

A HAIR salon with a namesake connection to a local charity is gearing up for a whole day of fund-raising, and is encouraging the public to get involved.

While there is no family connection, the staff at the salon thought the name match was enough for them to get involved.

Gillian Bray, a stylist at the salon, said: "We like to organise fund-raiser events at least every other year and feel the Joe Way charity is very worthy, and also very close to our hearts. All of the staff here are happy to donate their time and expertise for the event – effectively working for free for the whole day."

They are now set to hold a special day on Monday, September 22 where the proceeds from an entire day of haircuts at the salon will be donated directly to the Joe Way fund. The idea is that we get in as many customers as possible on the day so all our appointments are fully booked," said Gillian.

"We will be charging people normal prices, but all that money will go to charity. If anyone wants to pay a bit extra, that's fine, it will all add to what we give to the appeal. We're hoping to raise hundreds of pounds."

Customers are now being encouraged to book in advance for September 22 to avoid disappointment, and so they can get a stylish haircut while giving to charity at the same time. Those wanting to make bookings should call the salon on 01637 875809.
