Shoppers indulge in glamour without the guilt
Shoppers enjoyed pampering treatments at The Rock – all in aid of a good cause.
The Rock Shopping Centre hosted its Beauty Rocks event on Friday 7th July – Sunday 9th of July and visitors were able to enjoy complimentary treatments including manicures, hairstyling, and makeup makeovers.
Housed in a marquee in front of The Range, the activity also raised funds for the national One Great Day campaign which will see the donations split between Jigsaw Bury and Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital.
The fundraising drive was given a boost on Saturday (8th July) when cos play group the 5th Legion attended and wowed visitors with their show stopping costumes whilst collecting for the cause.
In total both elements of the activity raised £713.59 for the two charities, the funds will be split equally.
Arnold Wilcox-Wood, Centre Director of The Rock, said: “Our Beauty Rocks event proved to be hugely popular with our visitors over the three days. The beauty teams used products from stores at The Rock, including M&S, Primark and Lush. One lucky winner also won a voucher for Urban Radiance Clinic which opened at the end of May.
“It was great to see so many people getting involved with having a pamper treatment whilst enjoying their weekend shopping trip – we know that times are tough right now, so we hope the small treat went a long way, it was also the perfect opportunity for us to raise some funds for charity.
“We must also pay a special thank you to the 5th Legion who were a big hit with our visitors – they collected £454 of the event’s total fundraising. Thank you to everyone who donated.”
