During April, the team at Lucy Hockey Hair Studio raised money for Water Aid clean water projects around the world through the sale of Aveda candles that were available to buy in the salon. 100% of the candle purchase price went to supporting clean water projects. However, Lucy and her team decided to go one step further for the cause, and on 6th April took part in a sponsored charity zip wire slide at the National Diving & Activity Centre in Chepstow. The Wire is one of the UK’s longest, tallest and fastest zip slides, running the 700 metre length of the NDAC Quarry.

To say it was a ‘hair-raising’ experience would be an understatement! Well done to the whole team for facing the challenge! They raised a total of £1400 for the Water Aid project and would like to say a huge thank you to all their clients who sponsored them.
