The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for millions of British small businesses, which is going to make it very challenging for businesses to survive. We are one of those businesses.
We have been a huge part of the community for 15 years, we support every local charity that we can and we support local businesses as much as we possibly can, we always have and we always will.
We never ask for anything back for what we do, our hearts are made to give BUT this time we NEED you.
Since we made the very difficult decision to close our business due to the COVID-19 pandemic we have been inundated with amazing people wanting to donate money to us to help through this crisis. Because we want to give back instead of just taking money from these amazing people, we are developing a series of videos for you to purchase. Each video can be bought (see below) or you can make a donation to us if you wish (again see below). We love our craft and everyone that has ever worked with us, visited us or even been involved with us on our social media channels will have seen this. We are always thinking about what we can do and how we can do it differently, and this, a global pandemic hasn't stopped us.
We would absolutely love to continue our business in Clowne but we are faced with extreme uncertainty in the coming months, we have two members of staff who are on the vulnerable list and this means they need to isolate for 12 weeks. Another 2 team members on maternity leave and that leaves our apprentice and rising star. This is looking like we will have to stay closed for potentially 12 weeks (we are hoping this changes, and will keep everyone informed if it does).
To survive 12 weeks without being able to open the door is going to be extremely hard, the government are doing an amazing job of supporting us as much as they possibly can but we also need to take action ourselves. Becky our Salon Director is not only a hairdresser, a mum or a business owner, she is also a Fantastic Business Coach. This means she works with other salons to help them to achieve what they want from their own business. She is using this time to develop this even further and is giving her time to help anyone in business that needs her support (see her facebook page for more information). We are a group of people who will always give back wherever we can without ever asking anything, BUT this time we are asking for your support to get us through this. We NEED you.
We are asking for your support to help us raise some much needed cash to keep our business alive, we are dedicated to helping our community and giving back as much as we can and this time we are asking for you to give to us. No matter how much you can give, we are truly grateful for everything and we aim to throw a HUGE party when we are able to get those scissors and tint brushes back out!
