A business manager is using her expertise to organise a series of events to raise money for the Bedford Hospitals Charity.
Mel Alfieri, who works at the Bedford branch of Barclays, is kicking off her programme with a pamper night hosted by 5th Avenue, in Howard Street.
She said customers will have the chance to try out a range of beauty treatments and help the charity at the same time.
“Alongside our ‘5 Million Young Futures’ commitment, Barclays has a fantastic community investment programme that encourages employees to get involved in the causes we care about,” she added.
“It’s about giving back our skills, time and energy to support our local communities, and I am doing just that by raising funds through a series of events for Bedford Hospital, which will be fund-matched by Barclays.
“I am so pleased that Kerry Cash and team at 5th Avenue have offered their time and expertise to help. The more people who come along the more we can raise for a worthy local cause.”
Mel, who is in training for the London Marathon, is taking booking for 15 minute treatments at £5, and 25 minute treatments for £10, from 4pm on Thursday, March 10.
