IT was a scene of madness when an Alice in Wonderland cut-a-thon brought the dream of having a child one step closer.

The award-winning team at Q Hair and Beauty, in North Street, Chichester, hosted the event earlier this month.

Raising an amazing £3,737.38 on the day took the total sum to the goal of £6,500 – the amount needed to pay for longed-for IVF treatment for a staff member.

Owner Anthony Barnes-Smith said: “While we’ve always been active in both local and national charity, the Q team knows charity begins at home and we are pleased we can help make a dream become a reality for someone we’ve worked with for many years.”

Complete with appearances from the Queen of Hearts and Mad Hatter, the day included a barbecue, hairdressing services and half-hour beauty therapy treatments.
