Charity Events for Zoe’s Place
Ego Hair and Beauty Salon have held charity events in Consett for Zoe’s Place. This is a baby hospice which takes care of babies and infants up to the age of 5 years old. All the children and babies that attend Zoe’s Place live with life limiting or terminal illnesses with special and complex needs to varying degrees. It’s the only ‘baby specific’ hospice service in the whole of the UK.
Currently, Zoe’s Place have hospices in Middlesbrough, Coventry and Liverpool. Each Zoe’s Place can accommodate up to six infants at any time. There are also facilities for the whole of the family if needed. The charity is a registered charity but receives little government funding, therefore rely on the generosity of the public often via charity events such as this.
When Ego Hair and Beauty Salon heard about Zoe’s Place they thought this was a wonderful charity, so they decided to organise charity events in Consett involving waxing on Friday the 6th of December where all participants are sponsored. In addition the salon organised a charity football match at Consett AFC stadium on Saturday the 14th of December. They have managed to get 30 local lads to play in this match where they have also paid up £10 each to get the ball rolling. There was also a raffle being held with some amazing prizes which have kindly been donated by local businesses.
The doors open at the stadium at 6.30pm and kick off is 7.15 pm, tickets are £4 for adults and £2 for children. Match tickets and raffle tickets can be purchased from Ego Hair and Beauty Salon in Consett (01207 593192) or you will be able to buy tickets on the door on the 14th at the stadium. All proceeds go to Zoe’s Place. Everyone is welcome to come along!
