231 233x300 Money collected at event in east London on July 6 to help improve St Anns Bay Hospital’s A&E

A CHARITABLE family fun day that will attempt to raise funds to help improve the conditions of a Jamaican hospital will take place in east London on July 6.

All proceeds raised at the event in Clapton will go towards the accident and emergency care at the St Ann’s Bay Hospital.

The day is organised by Angelia Christian from the Angel Foundation, which last year successfully donated two ambulances to the same hospital on Jamaica’s north coast after she saw the bad conditions in the accident and emergency and started fundraising back in the UK.

Entertainment on the day will include cake decorating, jewellery making, t-shirt designing, kiddies corner, bouncy castle, art and craft, cultural show, zumba dance classes and an all-day barbeque.

In the evening there will be a special stage show featuring Momo-Watt, Winston Reedy and Yvonne Curtis.

The family fun day will take place at The Round Chapel, Powerscroft Road, Lower Clapton Road, London, E5 OLY, starting from 12.00pm until 10.30 pm.

We are happy to announce that two new areas called the Natural Zone and Afro Nail & Beauty Bar have been added to the crowd-pleasing exhibitor list, which is set to make every visitors experience to Afro more unique, informative and utterly indulgent. 

Calling all Naturalistas

There has been a seismic shift in women choosing to wear their natural hair texture and with this fast-growing sector causing a storm on the internet, we have recruited a host of top brands such as Beautiful Roots, Mixed Chicks, Simply Organics, Joseph Alex Botanical to showcase their latest and most innovative products.

Those who have decided or are dabbling with the idea of transitioning from chemicals to natural may be confronted with the following concerns: Do you know how to look after your texture? Do you understand your curl pattern? Can you find the right hairstyle? All these questions can be answered at one of our exclusive seminars headed by a leading industry expert, who will be ready and waiting to impart their knowledge and unlock the secret to beautiful hair.

Must-see

Popular hair care range, Root2Tip, has easy-to-follow advice for mothers who need guidance on how to look after their little ones’ hair. Xina Boderick from Nature’s Parlour will be conducting an essential seminar on natural skin care.

Natural Hair Ambassador from USA, Taliah Waajid, will demonstrate how to wear on-trend natural styles that are protective and suitable for any curl type.

Afro tip

To get the most out of these one-of-a-kind seminars, we suggest that you write down every question you have about natural hair and bring them along on the day. You can even bring photos of hairstyles you are interesting in wearing and have an expert help you choose what will work best for you!
