A business marked its tenth anniversary with a special donation to a cancer group.

Staff at Whitley Bay-based beauty salon Taizen spent a week supporting cancer patient transport service Daft as a Brush.

The monies raised by Taizen will go towards the day to day running costs of this service

And during the week they raised £450, which they donated to charity founder Brian Burnie.

He said: “It was extremely kind of the people of Whitley Bay to support a charity that provides free transport to cancer patients across the north east. The monies raised by Taizen will go towards the day to day running costs of this service.”

Owner Kelly Taylor said: “I cannot believe it has been ten years for Taizen.

“I would like to thank all of our fantastic clients and my amazing team for their loyalty, support and custom on reaching this milestone. Here’s to the next ten.”

Kelly started Taizen after recognising a gap in the market for a centre dedicated to offering personalised skin treatments, evolving to bring a wide variety of treatments.
