A SALON has raised hundreds of pounds for charity after the sudden death of a friend.

Tulio Lanni, from Karen and Tulios hair salon in Hitchin, wanted to give something back to the hospital that helped his friend during his illness.

Keith Stoughton from Whitwell was 52 when he died from a brain tumour just before Christmas.

It was Keith's wish that the hospital should benefit after all the care they had given him and Tulio has helped to carry that wish out.

With the help of everyone at the salon, Tulio held a charity night for customers and friends and managed to raise over £400.

Tulio said: "It's a fantastic achievement to know Keith's wish will be made true and I'd like to thank everyone who helped us."

The money will go to the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in London.
