SOLIHULL dad’s new look raised much-needed funds in aid of Autism Awareness Month.

Elliott Robinson, who owns oven valeting firm Ovenu Solihull, raised a whopping £400 for Autism West Midlands in aid of the Light It Up Blue campaign when he died his hair blue last month

Light It Up Blue is the signature campaign of Autism Speaks, which aims to raise awareness of autism as well as support of people living with condition.

Lee Scolding Hairdressing, on Warwick Road, lent its support to the initiative as its team of stylists dyed Elliott’s hair and assisted with his fundraising appeal.

Elliott, who’s five-year-old daughter, Catherine, was diagnosed with the condition at a young age, said: “I’m always up for doing things that are out of the ordinary in the name of charity, and I am delighted with the response I received for my latest initiative.

“It is a charity and cause which means so much to me and my family, and I would like to thank everyone for their ongoing support.

“Lee and his team did a great job with my hair, and I hope to work with them again in the future for more fundraising campaigns.”

Lee Scolding, owner of Lee Scolding Hairdressing, added he was glad to able to get involved and support Elliott’s initiative.
