Salon treatment at Crosby Training

Nanette & Tracy’s Visit to the ‘The Salon’
By Nanette Mellor, our C.E.O.

What is it about glamorous good-looking women? Why do they always seem to go out of their way to make the rest of us feel small (or fat, or wrinkly or poor)? Any woman feeling a bit low on self-esteem has been there. The dreaded first walk in to a new hairdressers, the disapproving look from the glamour puss behind the counter. And that long hard stare they make you give yourself in the mirror whilst they ask, “Do you dye your own hair then?” and “Wow! You’ve got a lot of grey haven’t you?”

Sarah with her Jewellery

The fabulous new range of silver and bead earrings, which are now being sold in our shop at the centre, are designed and made by Sarah Lake who is one of our service users.

Sarah had a stroke following a road traffic accident two years ago that has left her with life altering injuries. Sarah has been coming to The Brain Charity to take part in our Tuesday morning craft classes for the last eighteen months and is a self taught jewellery maker. Initially making earrings as gifts for friends and family, Sarah has decided to use her newly acquired skills to give something back to The Brain Charity for all of the support she’s been given.

We think you’ll agree that her stunning designs are a must have item and we’re delighted that Sarah has chosen to sell her beautiful earrings to fundraise for us!
