A CHANCE to get ahead and support three cancer charities is being offered by a Pembrokeshire hairdressing family.

On Friday, June 6, Todaro’s will be donating all the money paid for men’s haircuts in its Haverfordwest and Milford Haven salons to the Paul Sartori Foundation, Shalom House and Prostate Cancer UK.

The charities have been chosen in memory of the business’s founder, Frank Todaro, who passed away in April at the age of 83 following a long battle with prostate cancer.

Said company director Michael Todaro: “As a local family business, we feel it is important to support charities which, in turn, have supported our own family members."

Anyone in need of a trim and wanting to help raise money for these special charities should contact either salon.

Since opening his first salon in 1962, Frank revolutionised hairdressing in Pembrokeshire, rubbing heads with top names such as Toni and Guy, and even cutting celebrity stylist Lee Stafford’s hair.

“He will be sadly missed by everyone in the town,” said Domenico. “He was one of the last original shopkeepers in Charles Street.”

“He could talk to people at their level, and they loved him for it.”
