Evolve hair & Beauty joins forces to support Poole Waste Not Want Not

Parkstone based hairdresser Evolve Hair & Beauty will be opening its doors on 23rd August to deliver free back to school haircuts to members of local Poole based charity, Waste Not Want Not. 

Located on Poole High Street the social supermarket supports local families that suffer from insufficient disposable income, providing access to everyday essentials.

Evolve Hair & Beauty will be donating 24 back to school haircuts to help support families in need. Commenting on the donation, salon owner, Sarah Blewden, and her Manager Deborah said; “over the last 18 months we are all aware of the struggles and pressures put on families during these unprecedented times, we are delighted to do something to help our local community.”

The Mayor of Poole Commented “it’s an absolute pleasure to come along today,”

Poole Waste Not Want Not’s Charity Project Manager, Erika Sloper said; “This is such a wonderful act of kindness. Many families struggle with the cost of back-to

school uniforms and would cut their child’s hair themselves. This is such a treat; we are very grateful to Debs and her team for their support.”
