Cheeky Burnham-On-Sea Christmas card raises smiles and charity cash!

A Burnham-On-Sea hairdressing salon has been raising smiles and money for charity with a daring Christmas card featuring its male customers.

A total of £1,800 has been raised from the sale of the cheeky cards, which show eleven plucky customers at JSB Hair in Berrow Road.

The light-hearted Christmas card from JSB HairJustine Brown, owner of the salon, said she was keen to do do something "attention-grabbing" to raise funds for charity this year.

"We wanted a Christmas card that was eye-catching and original without being offensive," she told Burnham-On-Sea.com.

"We've all seen the film Calendar Girls and this is our twist on it! I invited 22 of our male customers to come along and although just 11 turned up on the day, the card works well."

"It was a light-hearted, fun atmosphere at the photo shoot and no-one felt uncomfortable at all."

The photo was taken by Bridgwater photographer Phillip Parsons and the money raised is going to Frenchay After Burns Childrens Club and Ehlers-Danlos Support Group.

The cash came from both the sale of the cards and an annual charity hair and fashion show held at the Webbington Hotel.
