The 2018 St Giles Hospice Solstice Walk takes place on June 16.

The event is the charity’s single biggest fundraiser of the year and will see women don their fairy wings ready to head out on a night-time walk around the city.

This year’s ‘angels’ will be able to get a stylish twist with a hair chalking ‘hair-up’ treatment from Anthony John Salons at the pre-walk party at Friary Grange Leisure Centre.

People will be asked to make a small donation with all money raised going to St Giles Hospice.

Tony Walmsley, founder and owner of the Heart of the Country-based salon, said: “The Solstice Walk is a fantastic event and it’s a privilege to support it.

“The team enjoy the amazing atmosphere the walk generates, and we hope our work contributes to this major fund raiser for St Giles Hospice.”

It is the third year the company has supported the event.

Zoe Westwood, event fundraising manager at St Giles Hospice, said: “Having Anthony John Salons at the Solstice Walk has been a great addition to the Solstice Sunset party as the ladies’ love being pampered before they take on the walk.

“Tony and his team have supported the Solstice walk for the last three years and St Giles Hospice really appreciates their support in helping to transform the hair of the fairies.”

The registration window for the 2018 St Giles Hospice Solstice Walk is at midnight on June 14.
