Nicole Coffey of Nicole’s Hair Salon on St Anne’s was inspired to run a fundraiser for a women’s refuge after hearing distressing stories from some of her clients.

On Saturday last she offered a wash and blow-dry to clients and rather than charging them for the her services her customers made a donation to Adapt Women’s Refuge in Tralee.

Nicole was inspired to run the charity day because a lot of her regular clients opened up to her while they were getting their hair done.

The timing of her charity day was poignant as it came just days after Ashling Murphy was murdered while out for a run in her own town of Tullamore.

“People open up while I do their hair, many of them would not know that there is a refuge in Kerry,” she told the Killarney Advertiser. “I have experience with clients who are struggling. I had this idea to create more awareness for Adapt.”

She raised €2,000 for Adapt and the cheque was handed over to the Tralee-based charity on Thursday night this week.

Such was the success of her charity day Nicole worked from 7am to 7pm and as well as cash donations customers also donated vouchers and care packs to the charity.
