New city business, Beauty Careers Training, reached out to embrace Milton Keynes couple Kayleigh and Ciaran Moore whose baby boy was tragically born sleeping this time last year.
The couple wanted to do something positive in baby Keagan’s name for his first anniversary and so the “Waxing for Little Souls” event was launched and took place on Sunday, February 26 at the Beauty Careers Training Facilities in Hulcote.
Owners Leander Cook and Michelle Moynes not only provided an amazing venue but a full team of experienced therapists along with their time and passion to ensure that the day made the family proud.
Keagan Jay Moore died on February 23 2011, shortly before birth and a time that should have been full of joy and celebration turned to a time where his parents were to face the tragic loss of their baby.
The charity SANDS work tirelessly to support these bereaved families and their guidance and support is crucial to families facing these deeply hard times. Kayleigh and Ciaran felt it was the right time to support the very charity that had supported them. They wanted to increase the awareness of this huge statistic and with the help of BCT launched the “Waxing for Little Souls Event”.
Leander Cook, said: “It is important for us as a business to support the local community and this event seemed the perfect way of embracing a local couple, who, although we’d never met, help them create the perfect environment for such a special day, we were deeply moved by their story and as parents felt it was the right charity for us to support.”
In continued support of the ‘Waxing for Little Souls” event, BCT have agreed to offer any pamper booking at a reduced rate to those customers booking within three weeks of this article with the money being feed back to Sands. A brilliant local business effort.
Sunday saw 17 hairy legs; chests and some very hirsute male underarms leave the BCT facilities beautifully smooth! Through the laughter and occasionally yelps, everyone knew the reason why they were enduring the waxing and the sponsorship came flying in. Local photographer Sue Smalley gave up her time to capture the moments when the men experienced a wax for the first time; along with the releasing of 50 balloons and 10 Chinese Lanterns as a sign of remembrance of a missed little boy.
Local sports teams, MK Dons and MK Lighting kindly donated family tickets to a league match and the family was incredibly grateful for such wonderful offerings to support the cause. The family would like to extend their gratitude to both teams, BCT and local photographer Sue Smalley for their support.
