FFS Beauty Joins Headcase Charity Fundraiser!

FFS Beauty Joins Headcase Charity Fundraiser!

At FFS Beauty, we believe in more than just skincare and beauty routines; we believe in making a difference. That's why we were thrilled to be part of the recent charity ball and fundraiser hosted by Headcase, an organisation dedicated to finding a cure for GBM, a formidable neurological condition.

The Battle Against GBM: A Cause Worth Fighting For

GBM is the most common and most deadly type of brain tumour, claiming the lives of around 5000 people each year in the UK alone. With an average life expectancy of just 14 months from diagnosis, there's an urgent need for a cure. At FFS Beauty, we understand the gravity of this situation, which is why we stand firmly behind Headcase's mission.

Where Fundraising Meets Innovation: Headcase's Approach

What sets Headcase apart isn't just their dedication to research; it's their vibrant and irreverent approach to fundraising. "Headcase is where fundraising meets ground-breaking research (with some leaves thrown in)," they proclaim. This innovative spirit resonates deeply with us at FFS Beauty, inspiring us to do more for causes that matter.

Headcase's commitment to raising funds solely for research to find a cure for GBM is unparalleled. Their Research Strategy, developed in collaboration with scientists and universities across the UK and beyond, reflects a holistic approach to understanding and combating this formidable condition.

And here's the kicker: Headcase is run entirely on a voluntary basis. That means every penny you donate goes directly to research, with over 98% of all funds received channelled straight into ground-breaking studies. Plus, thanks to Gift Aid, every £1 donated actually generates £1.05 for research – now that's what we call maximizing impact!

So when you donate or fundraise for Headcase, rest assured that your contribution is making a real difference where it matters most – in the fight against GBM.

Des and Colin: A Partnership for Change

Our founder, Des, has been a long-time supporter of Headcase, going above and beyond to contribute to their cause. From providing transportation to volunteering as a guide rider through the challenging Pyrenees Mountains, Des has been a steadfast ally in the fight against GBM. Pictured alongside Colin Spiers, the Founder of Headcase, Des exemplifies our commitment to making a difference.

Headcase Trustee & Head Fundraiser, Colin Spiers, said:

"At Headcase Cancer Trust, we rely on support from our generous commercial partners. This goes a huge way to maximising the funds raised. Des McManus and his associated companies including FFS Beauty have contributed and donated over many years which this weekend included fundraising prizes from FFS Beauty. Also, as a keen cyclist, Managing Director, Des, volunteers his time to help guide our guests all along the route. Headcase Cancer Trust very much appreciates everything Des & his associated companies does to support the charity!"


Glamour for Good: FFS Beauty's Contribution

This year, FFS Beauty contributed £500 worth of beauty products to the fundraiser's auction, adding a touch of glamour to the event. Seeing attendees bid generously for these products was not only heart-warming but also a testament to the collective effort to support Headcase's ground-breaking research.


Celebrating Success: £10,000 Raised and Counting

The energy at the charity ball was palpable, fuelled by the collective desire to make a tangible difference. And the results spoke volumes: over £10,000 raised in a single night, adding to the impressive tally of over £1 million since Headcase's inception. It's proof of what can be achieved when individuals and organisations come together with passion and purpose.

A Call to Action: Together, We Can Make a Difference

As we reflect on our involvement in this meaningful event, we're reminded of the power of community and the importance of giving back. At FFS Beauty, we're committed to supporting causes like Headcase, not just with donations but with our unwavering dedication to making a positive impact wherever we can.

So here's to riding the waves of charity, one auction bid, one fundraiser, and one breakthrough at a time. Together, we can make a difference. Together, we can be more Headcase.
