The Great Westrow Walk – Setting Out on 24 June

Staff of the stylish Westrow Hairdressing Group will begin a 100 kilometre walk to raise funds for The Principle Trust Children’s Charity this Friday. It will be the first day of a three day challenge to cross West and North Yorkshire, visiting every one of the nine Westrow salons.

This marathon effort is part of Westrow’s 35-year anniversary celebrations, with the aim of raising £5000 for the Trust. The charity provides free respite holidays to children who are underprivileged, disadvantaged, disabled, have life-limiting conditions, or who have experienced poverty, trauma or abuse.

Day One

The starting point for the team, aged between 18 and 59, is Westrow’s Skipton salon on Friday 24 June, calling at the Ilkley branch before crossing moorland to arrive in Bingley at the end of the first day.

Day Two

On Saturday 25 June, the start at Bingley heads to Westrow’s salon and academy in Leeds City Centre, before heading to further branches in Westpark and Roundhay.

Day Three

On the final day, Sunday 26 June, the group of intrepids leaves Roundhay, walking to Wetherby, before arriving at the finish line in Harrogate.

Westrow director and co-founder Marc Westerman is a patron of The Principle Trust:

“We’re excited to be embarking on The Great Westrow Walk in support of The Principle Trust; every penny we raise will help to fund much-needed respite holidays for families across Yorkshire.”

Founder of The Principle Trust, Mike Davies MBE:

“Over the last decade, the Trust has helped thousands of disadvantaged, disabled and poorly children to escape their everyday troubles and create valuable, happy memories. We rely entirely on donations and are indebted to Marc and the team at Westow for their incredible support.”
