Hair stylist Sara-Jane McBride from Perth’s John Gillespie hair salon, is one of eight UK volunteers to travel to the SOS children’s Village in Kolkata, India, to teach disadvantaged young people the skill of hairdressing.

Perth HairShaping Futures is a social initiative set up by Schwarzkopf Professional in partnership with SOS Children’s Villages, and Sara will teach 30 students the art of hairdressing in order to help less privileged young people create a career for themselves once they have left the village.

As part of the initiative, each volunteer must raise £3000 to cover the cost of all flights and accommodation, and Sara’s latest fundraiser has definitely helped her on her way. Held at 63 Tay Street, Perth, Sara rounded up friends, family and clients to have a charity dinner and raffle raising over £1,200.
