The money was raised in memory of their mum, Danielle Harker, who was Suzi's daughter. Danielle died last month after a brave fight against bowel cancer.

A cheque has been presented to Danielle's mum Suzi Folley who went along to the salon in Burnley Road with Danielle's daughter Shae and son Arlo.

Suzi is a long time client at the salon and Danielle also used to go there as a child.

Suzi described the event as a 'magnificent gesture' and thanked all the customers who donated for their generosity and kindness.
