Fund-raiser for Jamie Bates at The Meres Leisure Centre

A FUND-RAISING event will be held at The Meres Leisure Centre later this month to help a popular young man recovering from a serious head injury.

The event has been organised by hairdressers around the town to raise money for former hairdresser Jamie Bates. Jamie, of Sandon Close, Grantham, suffered a fractured skull and brain injuries following an accident in July, 2010.

Hair salons in Grantham including Scots, Gerards, Halo, Head Office, Head Room and Genes have teamed up for the event on Sunday, April 29 which will feature a Live Hair Show where Grantham stylists will be creating “show stopping looks across four themes”.

Other attractions include a charity auction and a live music from Tom Singler and The System.

The event will be held from 7.30pm until 9.30pm. Tickets are £12 and available from Grantham College, the Business Development Centre in The George Shopping Centre and selected hair salons.
