A Kendal-based award-winning hair and beauty salon will be throwing open its doors to exhausted NHS staff for free treatments, following the COVID-19 lockdown. Daniel Gray Hair & Beauty is making the extraordinary gesture to say ‘thank you’ for the tireless efforts of NHS heroes on behalf of those suffering from the coronavirus.
“On the Sunday following the end of lockdown (date yet to be confirmed), the business will host NHS workers for free hair and beauty treatments,” explains Daniel Gray’s owner and Director, Nicola Tomlinson. “We all appreciate the tremendous and on-going efforts of doctors and nurses at this time and want to make them feel special once we all come out the other side of this crisis. We understand that, working such long hours, medical staff will have had little time for themselves.”
Daniel Gray has been a firm fixture in Kendal since 1981 and has a loyal and well-established customer base. It offers a variety of hair and beauty treatments such as tinting, waxing, nail and eyebrow therapies, all of which will be available to NHS workers post-lockdown.
“I have a sister-in-law, two nieces and cousins all working in the NHS and recognise the sacrifices that they are making,” says Nicola. “With this so close to home, I wanted to do something for them. Everyone will know of somebody affected by the coronavirus, so it is vital we pull together at this time and demonstrate support in whatever way we can.”
