Community & Service Since 2003

The TONI&GUY Charitable Foundation is the official charity of the internationally renowned hairdressing company, established by Toni and Pauline Mascolo with the aim of helping a variety of worthwhile causes. Macmillan Cancer Support, The Stroke Association, and The Variety Club are some of our past beneficiaries.

OUR STORY

Since its constitution in 2003, the TONI&GUY Charitable Foundation has supported the renovation of the TONI&GUY children’s ward at the King’s College Hospital by donating £700,000 to The Variety Club Children’s Charity. Following the completion of the ward the Foundation will continue to support the ward’s maintenance and upkeep.

In 2009 the TONI&GUY Charitable Foundation teamed up with Macmillan Cancer Support to help those affected by Cancer with a specialised training scheme for hairdressers called Strength in Style. We currently have trained consultants in 150 salons across the UK and we keep training new staff organising courses four times a year in London and Manchester. Over time, our salons have greatly contributed to Macmillan through specific events and other activities.

In 2016 and 2017 we also supported The Stroke Association, sponsoring Life After Stroke Awards: a wonderful and inspiring event that recognises the achievements of everyone affected by stroke and celebrates survivors for showing tremendous spirit and determination.

After a long pause due to the loss of our patron Toni Mascolo in 2017, and the Covid-19 pandemic, we are resuming our chartiable initiatives full force. We have appointed a new Chairman of the charitable foundation – Pierre Mascolo, Toni and Pauline’s youngest son, to continue his father’s mission.

This year, with your help we aim to raise vital funds exclusively for the TONI&GUY Ward at King’s College Hospital. TONI&GUY Ward is a children’s general medical ward with 15 beds. It specialises in caring for children with breathing (respiratory), blood (haematological) and cancerous (oncological) conditions.

Kind Words

Thanks to the generosity of the Toni & Guy Foundation, the Toni & Guy children’s ward at King’s College Hospital has been completely transformed. The 50,000 young patients who are treated at the ward per year, now have access to state-of-the-art facilities. These include well-equipped play areas, facilities for parents to stay overnight with their children, and a parents’ room which provides a calming, relaxing and non-clinical space for parent’s and caregivers to take a break. 

The difference this has made on the children’s wellbeing and recovery at King’s has been incredible. With more donations, we can continue to make a real difference to the lives of young patients on our ward, providing world-class care. Any donation, small or big, will make a difference.
