There were celebrations all around - including wedding bells - at a recent charity ball which raised £3,700 for the Little Princess Trust.

The evening, organised by Salon Alchemy, which is based in Oldrids Department Store, in Boston, was held at the South Holland Centre.

As well as the charity fundraising, the event celebrated the marriage of Salon owners Rocco Tizzano and Kelly Varley which had taken place – in secret – that morning at Spalding Registry Office.

Kelly said: “Just before we danced the night away to local band Zebra, we announced to the team and our guests that we had got married that morning.

“We kept it that low key that Rocco went off to work after and I headed straight to the venue to set up for the evening.

“This caused mass hysteria filled with smiles, cheers and tears of joy.”

Also being celebrated were Rocco’s 10 years in business and the team’s winning of the Boston Business Awards’ Customer Service title in October.

Kelly and Rocco will have been together 15 years this September.

They celebrated five years of Salon Alchemy last week.

Five years prior Rocco worked in partnership with Pep Pasqualino and Image International.

Kelly is an ex-student at Spalding High School and a hockey player at Spalding Hockey Club, in Surfleet.

She said: “The night was a great success and we will plan another one in the future.”

She thanked everyone who supported the event.

“We have raised more than £3,700, which is great as a first time event,” she added.

Children’s cancer charity The Little Princess Trust supplies real hair wigs to children suffering with cancer.

The salon is looking to offer anyone donating their hair to the Little Princess Trust to have it done on a complimentary basis.

Those taking part must be donating hair at least 17cm long and the salon is limiting it to one a week so booking in advance is advisable. To book, call 01205 368368.
