Shades of Stevenage is a well loved hairdressing salon, that has undergone refurbishment and offers a range of services. Including a couple of special quiet rooms designed to provide autism friendly hairdressing.

Stephen McPartland, Member of Parliament for Stevenage, said “It was fantastic to visit Shades in the Hyde and learn more about the services they offer. I was really impressed with the autism friendly quiet rooms that allow children to have their hair cut and styled in an environment suitable for them. I know many families, with autistic children that really struggle getting them to the hairdressers. The team are so friendly and offer such an amazing array of services designed to help the local community. I am proud they are here and look forward to seeing more of them.”

Sarah, the manager at Shades, added, “Our Sensory Room has even surprised us at how popular it has become. We have worked closely with Greenside School in understanding the needs of Children & Adults on the spectrum and thank them for all their help in making our Sensory Room a success. The biggest reward we have is seeing the happiness on the faces of everyone that uses the Room.”

Pupils from Almond Hill School invited Stevenage MP Stephen McPartland to look around their school, and spend some time with the school government, led by Maddie and Evie.

Stephen McPartland MP said, “It was fantastic to meet the School Government and I was very impressed with the range of questions they asked. The tour of the school really illustrated the sense of enthusiasm in pupils and staff.”

Maddie and Evie ( Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister) greeted Stephen and showed him around the school. They reported, "We started off in year 3 and  3J were lucky enough to ask multiple questions which Mr McPartland answered. On the  way down to year 4 we showed him our wonderful work on the book 'Journey'. 5S asked lots of questions, encouraged by their teacher, Miss Simmons. After this, we looked around year 6 and the rest of the government joined us for a meeting. We told him about how we were elected, what we do and then we all asked questions that had been collected from the rest of the children."

Stephen McPartland MP met with Patricia McDonnell, a Marie Curie Rapid Response Healthcare Assistant, and Marie Curie Ambassador Stephen Mangan to celebrate the launch of the Great Daffodil Appeal.

Stephen McPartland MP said, “Every five minutes, someone in the UK dies without getting the care and support they need at the end of their life. The money raised from the Appeal will help Marie Curie be there for more people living with any terminal illness such as terminal cancer, dementia, heart failure, and motor neurone disease.

"I am proud to pledge my support to the Appeal and know that many local people in the Stevenage area help fund vital care and support for people living with a terminal illness, and their families."

Patricia McDonnell added, “Behind every daffodil, there’s a story. Whatever your story, donating and wearing a Marie Curie daffodil will help make sure we can be there for more people when they need us the most. Marie Curie services rely on the generosity of the public, so I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who gives a donation and wears a daffodil pin during March.”

The charity's free national Support Line now also offers clinical support, enabling anyone with a terminal illness to access a Marie Curie Nurse.  The Information and Support Nurses can answer any clinical questions or concerns people may have, from understanding a diagnosis to explaining treatments, or talking about painful and distressing symptoms.
