Littleport salon to give a helping hand to charity Alopecia UK
A BEAUTY parlour in Littleport is hoping to raise hundreds of pounds for charity by donating half of all its takings for a month.
Realm 11 was opened in Granby Street at the start of June but already proprietor Verity Jarvis is hoping to make her mark by raising money for Alopecia UK, a voluntary group set up to provide support and advice to suffers of the rare condition.
People afflicted with the condition often lose all their hair, including eyebrows and eyelashes, and Verity has had first-hand experience of providing semi-permanent make-up for women with the condition.
She said: “Semi-permanent make-up can literally change the lives of people who suffer from hair loss caused by Alopecia.
“I am a registered member on the Alopecia UK suppliers directory but would like to do more to raise awareness for such charities.

“I will donate 50 per cent of all bookings for the month of August to Alopecia UK which is ran purely by volunteers. I could potentially raise quite a large sum of money which would be great.”
