Fiona opened Salon Royale at the Royal Children’s Hospital three years ago. Her first client was a paraplegic boy who had to be wheeled in on his bed. From that moment Fiona decided never to charge a patient of the hospital and she has since gone on to cut over 700 kids hair (and counting) for no charge. She regularly helps out the parents and carers too, knowing that they are going through some extremely difficult times.
The unique sense of community she has created at the hospital is irreplaceable. Fiona is looking like she may have to close her doors in 2018 if business doesn’t pick up.
So I got off my arse (!) and started a Go Fund Me page for her salon’s rent. I figure if we can cover the 700 haircuts she’s done (and counting), this will help Fiona keep her doors open while more sustainable solutions are explored.
Have a read of Fiona’s story, help pay the rent and share.
Thank you for reading.
