Envy are always keen to support local charities where possible. 

2016 Envy's chosen charity was Hugs from Henry. 

Hugs From Henry supports families affected by childhood cancer, neuroblastoma from diagnosis, through treatment and post. The Hugs From Henry team aims to grow the charity to be able to support hundreds of families who are forced to deal with neuroblastoma across the United Kingdom. 

The Envy team held various small fund raising events such as Cake sales, sponsored walk, raffles, mufti day and had collection change buckets in the salon all year round. 

On 23rd December Tracie Gunningham presented a cheque for £962.21.  

Well done TEAM ENVY. 



The Envy staff members braved the weather for a 3 legged walk around Burrator resevoir. However, it wasn’t just for the giggles, the team raised £255 for Hugs from Henry!

Already looking ahead to the next fund raiser, the team will be wearing purple on the 29th April for Hugs From Henry’s “wear it purple” day. Sponsorship forms can be found in all salons.

Envy are proud to announce, their chosen charity for 2016 will be Plymouth based ‘Hugs From Henry’.

Requested specifically by the staff of the 3 Envy salons, all fundraising will go towards raising awareness and support for children suffering a rare childhood cancer.

Henry Hallam was only 3 years old when his family were told he had stage 4 Neuroblastoma, a form of childhood cancer.  Henry suffered months of gruelling treatments to help save his life, in various locations across the country.

The original charity ‘Hugs For Henry’ was set up to help raise money for treatment available outside the UK, which could be beneficial to Henry.

In 2013, Henry was given the news that his condition is stable. His parents decided to change the charity from ‘Hugs For Henry’ to ‘Hugs From Henry’ – The charity offers any kind of support emotionally and financially for families who find themselves in the same position as the Hallam family did in 2012.

Envy will be hosting a variety of different charity events throughout the year to raise money for their local charity.

Envy supports local Plymouth charities

February 20th 2015

Envy have been stepping up their game in the charity fundraising world this year.

During the chilly February month, Envy partnered up with Nuffield Health to support Plymouth’s  local charities- Jeremiahs Journey, Kibera in Need and Shekinah- to help raise money for each cause.

The talented Envy stylists visited Nuffield Health, carrying their bags of equipment ready hard to work and raise money all for chairty. 

To raise some big cash, owner Tracie Gunningham devised a tempting strategy to gain the public interest- quality services at cheap prices. 

The Envy team offered:

  • £10 cut & blow dry’s  
  • £5 gents cuts 
  • £10 shellac nails

At these prices, who could say no- especially after a hard workout at the gym! 

In total with just one day of events, the Envy team alone raised an amazing £100 for each individual charity.

This is an amazing achievement for the team, who plan to take part in many more charity events throughout the year.
