AN OPEN day to raise funds for the charity Help For Heroes will be held at a newly-opened salon in Daventry.
Medusa Touch, which is based at the Abbey Retail Park, will be holding the fun day as part of its official opening on tomorrow (Saturday) from 2pm. There will be a tombola, face painting, braiding and a name the teddy competition.
There will also be a raffle with prizes including a hamper worth £100, a colour and cut at the salon worth £80 and a month’s membership at Everyone Active’s Daventry Leisure Centre. These will be given away alongside meals and supermarket vouchers.
Funds will be donated to Help for Heroes as the owner Shirley Tebbutt’s son Aidan James O’Brien, a sergeant for the First Battalion of Grenadiers Guards, will be returning from a tour of duty in Afghanistan.
She said: “I was hoping he would be back for the open day but there will be a friend of his in military uniform.
“It is a fantastic cause and does a lot of good work in supporting the servicemen who have been injured during combat. People don’t hear about all of the good work that the charity do.”
