A splash of colour as firies join the cause | Illawarra Mercury.


A group of NSW Fire and Rescue officers from Wollongong are sporting new hairdos after stepping up to the Highlights for Hope challenge.

Hairdressers Elle Andrade, Natalie Taylor and Karin Waldock, from Artique salon in Figtree, spent hours spraying, cutting and colouring the officers’ locks.

The Highlights for Hope campaign is running in 20 of the region’s leading hair salons to raise awareness of the Light and Hope Clubhouse, a centre for people with mental illness.
