AN EXPERIENCED hairdresser has fulfilled an ambition to open her own salon – with an ongoing partnership with a charity close to her heart.
Emma Rich, 24, opened Mane Attraction, in South Street, Tarring, this month, holding a charity fundraiser to mark the occasion.
The salon will work closely with the Luke Cory Trust, which helps provide holiday memories for families with children suffering from life- threatening conditions.
Emma said: “We raised about £50 on the day for the charity, and plan to work with them as we go along, offering discount days and events for them.
“I have been a hairdresser for eight years, up until 2011, and for various reasons started working from home.
“I then decided to open my own shop, and I am really looking forward to getting started with my team.
“My mum, Shane, looked after Luke Cory before he sadly died, so that was the inspiration.”
The day was attended by Worthing mayor Bob Smytherman and mayoress Norah Fisher, with the ribbon cut by Fleur Cory, from the Luke Cory Trust.
