Aqua Hair Spa supported Newham Giving for a its fundraising day last Thursday by holding activities to raise money and awareness.


A beauty salon owner has helped to fund children’s activities after saying youth schemes were scarce during her upbringing.

Ayse Enver, who runs Aqua Hair Spa on the Isle of Dogs, donated an entire day’s proceeds from her hair cuts and beauty treatments for grant-giver Newham Giving.

The initiative channels funds to grassroots organisations for youth projects to offer a lifeline to families who cannot afford school holiday activities.

Ayse says her dream of working in the hair and beauty industry was formed by childhood visits to a salon in Rathbone Market, Canning Town.

She hopes today’s youngsters can gain social and development skills through community projects.

“Saturday clubs and youth clubs were limited or extremely expensive to attend [when I was young],” Ayse said.

“This is why I am so passionate about the next generation getting better access to youth clubs and this is why I support Newham Giving.”
