A Horsham hair salon will be donating its day’s takings to different charities on 12 separate occasions this year.

T Cuts, in Swindon Road, will support the mostly local organisations by offering the money earned by the salon on the last Monday of each month of the year.

Owner Tracy Bassett, 39, came up with the idea as a way to be more charitable in 2014.

She said: “I have got a lot of customers with learning difficulties and Alzheimer’s.

“I thought rather than asking them to donate, they can come and have a haircut and they are giving what they would normally give.

“There are so many people locally that seem to be having problems, and I would like to think that if I needed help somebody would help me.”

Tracy has been working hard to form partnerships with charities, and has confirmed five of the charities that will receive donations from T Cuts through the first five months of the year.

They will be Age UK Horsham in January, the Butterfly Project in February, the Springboard Project in March, the Alzheimer’s Society in April and Cats Protection Horsham in May.

Tracy added: “Everybody I have spoken to so far has been so positive.

“It is nice to do something for local people.”

She joked: “I’m scared I’m not going to raise enough money!”

Tracy has urged any local charities to contact her for possible donations later in the year. She can be contacted on 07932739159.
