Australian hair salon franchise Just Cuts takes corporate social responsibility very seriously.
Having recently fundraised for charities such as The Little Princess Trust and SANE Australia, the head office team, along with franchise owners and stylists, are currently planning further campaigns.
UK general manager David Mathie explained: “In December, we launched the SANE Australia #Hearts4SANE campaign, which raises awareness of mental illnesses and grants funding to this worthwhile cause.
“Clients could come into the salon and donate money towards a blue heart, which they could write messages of encouragement on. These were then stuck to the wall of the salon for the five days of the campaign.”
David added: “Supporting mental health charities is something we feel passionate about as a brand, especially as the COVID-19 pandemic is driving a spike in demand for mental health services. The campaign was so successful that it’s something we will replicate with a U.K.-based mental health charity later this year.”
