An award-winning celebrity nail artist Stephanie Staunton from Dartford, Kent, raised over £7000 for mental health charities in April in a mass nail painting mission – and she’s set to beat that this on Monday 2nd October 2017 with a hand from some of her celebrity contacts.
Stephanie Staunton, who has tended to the nails of Little Mix, Leona Lewis and Scarlett Johansson and headed up teams at London Fashion Week, set up Nailing Mental Health, a campaign to raise funds for mental health charities.
When word got out about her money-raising mission, her network of over 300 nail technicians volunteered to travel to London and lend a hand to paint as many nails as they could in eight hours, charging £5 a time which was donated to the charities MIND and Samaritans.
The campaign was such a success that Olympia Beauty, a huge event for the beauty trade, has offered to host the campaign again this autumn, on Monday 2nd October, to raise even more funds.
Mental health issues are the focus of BBC Radio 1’s reports this year, and are well supported by the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry via their work with Heads Together. Stephanie is hoping to use her celebrity clients and contacts to smash April’s £7000 raised.
Stephanie comments: “I set up Nailing Mental Health when I was recovering from a traumatic biopolar episode and feel that more people need to be made aware of mental health issues. Hopefully, this event can raise awareness of mental health issues – and the support available. We want you to get involved and help any way you can.”
