Akito Scissors launch fundraising campaign for paralysed Midsomer Norton stylist


Akito Scissors have launched a campaign to raise £56,000 treatment for a paralysed stylist.

Mitch Chalmers was left unable to walk after a motorcross accident in 2014.    

Through sheer determination Mitch has since re-trained and pursued his dream of becoming a hairdresser.

Thanks to a stand-up wheelchair he now works full-time as a stylist at James Christopher Hairdressing in Midsomer Norton.     

Akito ambassador Ben Brown has donated his original pair of Akito F-2 black 5” scissors—purchased in 2017, these scissors have can be seen in Ben’s educational videos which have over 4,000,000 views.

These famous scissors were auctioned off on social media this month raising £100.

With the winner, Lea Shaw (@leashawhair) from Rural Fringe Hair Salon putting in the winning bid.  

Akito Scissors are planning more fundraising events this year and would welcome anyone looking to get involved to get in touch.
