Holiday Haircuts

Tyla Malcolm offered haircuts free of charge at her Parlour hair salon just before Christmas, with the goal of getting anyone who wanted one spruced up for the holiday season. Malcolm got the idea from a friend at Northern Health who asked if she could help with a haircut for a patient who could not afford it. Malcolm did so, then deciding to take the idea further. Along with her fellow Parlour hairdressers, the crew spent the morning giving early Christmas presents, and confidence, to the steady stream of customers who came in.

Even the visitors are chipping in

The Prince Rupert Cruise Ship Volunteer Ambassadors recently made donations to two organizations in town. Proceeds from their collection jar were donated to the Wildlife Shelter.
