Hair And Beauty Charity Bike Ride

Bike ride raises over £7k for Hair & Beauty Charity

A team of 14 riders took part in the Hair & Beauty Charity Bike Ride, which raised £7,265 to support hair & beauty professionals in need.

The event returned for this first time since 2019, when teams previously travelled to Girona, Spain. This year’s challenge saw the ride take place in the valley of Lake Garda.

The group took rides of varying difficulty, with gentle routes to full-on adventures into the foothills and beyond all set against a picturesque backdrop.

This was the fifth Hair & Beauty Charity Bike Ride to be organised by Headquarters’, Victor Pajak, who commented: “Thank you to everyone who took part in this year’s Hair & Beauty Charity Bike Ride and to everyone who supported riders on their fundraising journey.

“It was a tough ride at times and I’m so proud of every rider who took part, and that we raised over £7,000 that will help the charity continue doing the great work that they do, and supporting people in our industry when they need it most.”
