Fiona Speaks out before the event later today..
“OMG! What have I done!
Today is the day that I have my hair shaved off for Charity and now it’s here I think I must be slightly mad! It was only two weeks ago that I decided this would be a good idea and signed myself up to the Macmillan ‘Brave the Shave’ campaign which the charity is running during this August.
The idea is to raise as much money as possible by having your hair shaved off and getting sponsored doing it!
Every penny that I raise will help Macmillan to give people with cancer and their families the specialised support they need, when they need it most!
We all know that cancer turns people’s worlds upside down. On top of the awful time that cancer sufferers go through to then loose your hair when your self-confidence and well-being are at their lowest must be truly dreadful!
I have a number of friends and family who are battling cancer and this seemed like a good way to show them my support and raise some money at the same time.
So, I set myself a target of £250, texted my hairdresser to warn her of my plan and started with my fund raising. I have to say I have been completely blown away by everyone’s generosity, backing and encouragement. As it stands at the moment between us, me and my supporters have hit £1273 which is a massive 500% of my target.
Later this morning I will make my way to my hairdresser’s salon and a 1pm I will go under the dreaded clippers. To be honest I am a bit nervous – both of the actual clippering and then of how I will be perceived afterwards by people who don’t know me or what I’ve done – it will be interesting to see what people’s reactions are like and whether they will pre-judge me for the way I am going to look.”
Best of Luck Fiona!
