STAFF at a beauty salon in Somerset have chosen to support Bridgwater-based charity bibic this year (2013).
Beauty by Emma on Church Street in Wedmore will be working with the charity throughout 2013 to help raise funds for its work with disabled children, their families and carers.
Emma Rogers, Owner of Beauty by Emma, said: “To celebrate the start of the new year we decided to officially name bibic as our chosen charity for 2013.
“It is a fantastic local charity and we’re proud to support the work it does to help families and children. I have profound dyslexia and that aspect of its work is very personal to me.
“We will be hosting various events as well as other fundraising activities in aid of the organisation. We kicked off the fundraising in December (2012) with a Christmas pamper night and proceeds were donated to the charity.”
bibic is a national charity, which has its headquarters at Knowle Hall, offering practical help to families caring for children with sensory, motor, communication, social or learning difficulties caused by conditions such as autism, cerebral palsy, Down’s syndrome, developmental delay, traumatic brain injury and specific learning difficulties such as attention deficits hyperactivity disorder, dyslexia and dyspraxia.
Jess Winchester, Fundraising & Communications Manager at bibic, said: “We’re delighted that Beauty by Emma is able to help us with our fundraising efforts in 2013.
“We receive no state funding for our work with families with very special children and rely on the incredible generosity of the community around us. Our families need constant support, so we are very grateful to Beauty by Emma for naming bibic as its Charity of the Year.”
