An Inverness barber is donating money from every haircut she does to Mikeysline.

Tracy Morris, originally from the Black Isle, is opening up at 13 Tomnahurich Street with a firm commitment to support the Inverness-based charity.

Her business TM Barbers, will also have a women's stylist, make-up and nail bar in the newly opened salon.

Ms Morris (49) said: "I hope to be able to support Mikeysline with £1 from every cut. It is not an opening up offer, I plan to do this with every hair cut permanently.

"Mikeysline is a charity that everyone knows and is supportive of. I have done a bit of fundraising for them before. I feel that it is very important that we all continue to support its work. It is an organisation that I think can make the difference in their outlook on life, and I want to support that.

"On the Black Isle there were two young men who died from suicide, both of them wonderful young men. I really just want to make sure that when people need someone to talk to, they can. Over the course of the year I am hoping that we will be able to donate a large amount of money. I know that every bit that we donate will go to good use.

"Many of my customers are regulars and I know that I can often be the highlight of their week, because of Covid there has been less for people to so often I am the only person that someone will sit and talk to.

"I enjoy chatting to customers for 20 minutes - but can you imagine if you have not spoken to anyone?

"That is what Mikeysline are there to do - to talk to people who need it."

She added: "I trained as a ladies hairdresser but moved into barbering around seven years ago. I love it, and I can not wait to get opened and see all of our customers again."

Mikeysline can be contacted on 07786 20 77 55, or by calling in at The Hive on Academy Street.
