Variety Club Children's hospital in London to benefit from TONI&GUY charity promotion
GM Daewoo has donated a brand new Lacetti Saloon to the TONI&GUY Charitable Trust – the charity set up by the hairdressing company’s founder, Toni Mascolo, to fund a new acute children’s ward within the Variety Club Children’s Hospital at the famous King’s College Hospital in London.
The recently launched Daewoo Lacetti, a five-door family hatchback designed by the legendary Italian stylist Giorgetto Giugiaro, will be the centre point of a soon to be announced promotion, linked to TONI&GUY’s 250 UK salons. All the money generated by the promotion will go towards the £700,000 needed to fund the creation of an acute children’s ward at the renowned south London teaching hospital.
"I am absolutely delighted that Daewoo have generously donated this beautiful car. The Charitable Trust is a subject close to my heart and with such a fantastic car, we are sure to raise lots of money for this worthy cause!" says Toni Mascolo, chairman and CEO of TONI&GUY.
"We are absolutely delighted that TONI&GUY, with the help of Daewoo, are helping raise money for a new children’s ward at King’s. This new state of the art ward will enable us to give sick children the excellent, first-rate care they deserve in the 21st century," adds Professor John Price, clinical director for child health, King’s College Hospital.Published 21 April 2004
