Anthony heading to Jordan to Shape Futures

Those of you who have had the pleasure to meet Anthony McMeiken from our Gilesgate salon will know he’s a talented young man with a big heart!

For those reasons, he has been chosen to travel to Jordan to teach hairdressing to disadvantaged hairdressers, along with six other volunteers, as part of Shaping Futures.

“I’m really excited for this next adventure,” says Anthony. “I can’t thank the salon team and my lovely clients enough for their continued support and donations to Shaping Futures.

“I am very grateful for everything this industry has given me and it means so much to be able to help these underprivileged women get a job and earn a living.”

In order to take part in the initiative, Anthony must raise £3,000 to cover the cost of all flights, accommodation, tools and equipment needed to teach the students.
