Event Summary

CUT & GROW Fundraiser/ Awareness Campaign to be held FROM 12th March – 19th March 2019

Cork barbers/hair salons will highlight the importance of positive mental wellbeing and awareness when they take part in the 2nd CUT & GROW campaign in March 2019 in aid of the mental health charity, GROW.

This is our second year running the “Cut & Grow’ which was very successful last year. The event which will take place for 1 week beginning on Tuesday 12th March until Tuesday 19th March in salons in Cork City & suburbs The aim is to raise mental health awareness and funds for GROW Mental Health.

GROW is one of Ireland’s oldest mental health charities – who celebrate 50 years old this year. We hold 15 free weekly peer-support groups across Cork city and county, as well as free community education programmes.

Here’s the concept behind the 1 week event.
“CUT & GROW is about fundraising but also raising awareness of GROW’s services in Cork and the importance of positive mental wellbeing. Over the week, we are encouraging hairdressers, barbers and their clients to open up about mental health. We want to encourage people from all walks of life to talk about their mental wellbeing, to reach out to others and to be aware of the supports that are available.

“People chat to their hairdressers and barbers when in a relaxed environment . Going to a salon is a social experience and people often talk about many subjects, including their daily lives and mental health. As a result, they are an ideal setting to show what GROW has to offer in terms of helping people who may be experiencing mental health difficulties or to inform people of the mental health supports that are available to someone that they know, be it a friend, colleague, family member or loved one,”.
