A SCARBOROUGH boxing star has thrown his weight behind a friend’s new business venture.

Danny Price said he was more than pleased to be asked to carry out the official opening of Georgina’s Hair Salon in Prospect Road.

Georgina Williams previously worked at John Paul’s Salon in Victoria Road and has now branched out to open her own business.

She and her boyfriend Gareth Sygrove have known Danny for a number of years.

Gareth and Danny are football teammates at Trafalgar FC.

Danny said: “I wanted to give them some support and I was quite shocked when they asked me if I’d open the new salon.

“George has been at John Paul’s for years and I think she’ll make a good go of it on her own, as I’ve heard she’s very good at her job.

“The salon looks really nice inside - it’s great.

“I wish them both well and hope it all goes successfully.”

Danny cut the ribbon and declared the shop open.
