“We found that at the time, there was not a lot of help and I want to help people that are in the same situation and may just need a friendly face,” said Sharon.“GPs at the time didn’t know what to do either, but she (Sharon’s daughter) has now flourished.“I have always said I would like to give something back to the community.”

The Willow Park salon owner wants to make her shop a welcoming place for members of the LGBTQ+ community and their families to come and chat. “I want to help people and their family members, I know how it felt being a mother,” she added.“If we don’t know the answer to something, we could go to the right person and find out for them.” Sharon is inviting members of the LGBTQ+ to come in for a coffee and a chat to introduce herself before offering one-to-one tutorials on how to do hair and makeup at home.The option to go into the salon in the evening for a more private session is also available.She also plans to be at Lynn’s Pride event on August 17.
