Julie Vintin, an NSPCC volunteer, had come up with the idea of holding an Easter Egg Raffle and asked her hairdressers Joanna Atkinson and Faye Rooney of Hair-Craft on Dugdale Road in Burnley if they would sell raffle tickets for a box of Easter Eggs the charity had put together.

Picking up the story, Julie said: "They immediately agreed and put the box on their counter along with a poster and began to sell tickets. I called in last week to find they had sold over £200 worth of tickets!

"I was astonished and thrilled to hear just how well they had done and thought this effort needed more than just a simple thank-you from me and the NSPCC but some sort of recognition from the general public," she added. "What a fantastic effort they have made; a huge thank-you to them."
