TH works for a company with a big history of charitable work.
In the past, for TH, this has included 30-mile sponsored walks for St Basils, a charity that works with homeless youth (not bad for a man who takes the bus to the corner shop!), volunteering as a teaching assistant in a Children’s Hospital school, various dress-down fund-raisers, and a stint as Mr July in a, er, nuddy calendar. F’r example.
This time though, it’s Personal….
He’s having the cruellest cut of all – for charity.
Yes, in November, this sad old rocker is having his hair cut off. Those ears haven’t seen sunlight for nearly twenty years! It’s been over a year since his last cut, and it’s almost waist-length: the ponytail is at least 16in.
His company is on board with sponsorship, and there is a raffle at work with the winner having the honour of wielding the scissors!
The charity is Little Princesses Trust, which provides wigs for children who have lost their hair due to cancer or alopecia. All hair donations are sent for wig-making, even bleached hair, as long as it’s at least 10ins long and in good condition. Hair from all ethnic groups, hair that has been stored for up to 10 years, hair in layers (min 10ins), it’s all good. And unlike some other hair-donation programmes, the hair is actually sent to wigmakers who return the wigs to the Trust for distribution – not sold to raise funds.
TH has set up a JustGiving webpage for additional cash donations to the Trust. Please consider donating, however small an amount – and, if you’re a UK taxpayer, please add GiftAid to your donation: it costs you nothing, and gets the charity an extra 28%.
