Alternative Hair is about promoting artistic hair talent but its heart is about raising money for Fighting Leukaemia. A short film to illustrate how the money raised is invested is shown to the audience before the Charity Appeal, which was presented by show host, Linda Evans and Leukaemia survivor, 7 year old, Blue Tobin. As well as putting money into the buckets shaken throughout the theatre by a team from Bloodwise, the audience was invited to text AHSW16 £5 to 70070
