We were delighted and honoured to welcome HRH The Princess Royal on a visit to our salon and Training Academy at Holy Corner where she unveiled a plaque to commemorate our 50 years in business. The Princess Royal spent an hour meeting with Directors, Managers, Assistant Managers and over 40 other team members from across the salons as well as a number of our longest-serving clients.
During a reception HRH learned about our work with the ‘Hair 4 U’ project and Teenage Cancer Trust (TCT) referral patients and met with patients and nurses involved. The company’s 6 ‘Trainees of the Year’ who are representative of our successful apprenticeship training programme were also introduced to The Princess Royal whilst demonstrating some of their cutting, colouring and styling skills.
HRH ended her visit after being presented with a charitable donation to her Charities Trust along with a posy of flowers.
Thanks also to STV News reporter Susan Ripoll and cameraman Colin for their coverage of the visit on STV News at Six.
