Celebrity hairdresser, Adee Phelan, has been giving back to the NHS throughout Lockdown by setting up his Thank You to the NHS gift box campaign.
At the beginning of Lockdown, Adee had an idea that he would like to give something back to the NHS heroes, so began collecting hair and beauty products to give to NHS workers.
After his appeal on social media went viral, multiple product companies
showed their generosity by donating pallets of products to Adee to package up and deliver to hospitals and NHS workers.
Having donated an incredible 10,000 boxes to 46 hospitals, equating to more than £865,000 worth of retail donations, Adee has taken the giving back campaign one step further and launched Pop-Up Salons for the NHS.
After the success of the first pop-up located in Jacks Bar in London Waterloo, Adee has now set his sights on bringing his NHS pop-up salons to the city of Liverpool, as a life-long supporter of Liverpool FC he wanted to give something back.
Adee was approached by Marina Dalglish to open another pop-up in the iconic Sir Thomas Hotel and thanks to the support of the Dalglish family along with Sir Kenny Dalglish bookings for the pop-ups are now in full
“The support from the people at Liverpool FC and the Dalglish family
has been incredible, I never dreamed it would get this far.
“At the beginning of Lockdown I could not quite believe what was happening and just felt like I had to do something to give back. My expertise is hairdressing so I thought why not call upon all my contacts and see what we can pull together and do. I had no idea it would be such as success and cannot believe how generous the manufacturers have been.
“This was such as success, I thought I would attempt a Pop-Up Salon to say an even bigger thank you to the NHS workers. They deserve to be treated and recognised. They are our heroes.”
The Liverpool pop-up will run at the Sir Thomas Hotel on 17-20 and 24-27 August, with further pop-up salons planned for Manchester and Birmingham.
“None of this would have been possible without the incredible donations and the kind hairdressers who have volunteered to help with this. I am completely humbled by the generosity of the hairdressing community,” he added.
