Hi, I'm shaving my head for Bandana day and standing up to fight cancer.

I’m taking part in Canteen’s Bandanna Day this year to support young people when cancer crashes into their world.

Canteen is the game changer. They help young people cope with cancer in their family, rebuild their foundations and connect with others in the same boat.

Please help me to reach my goal and together we can take a stand for young people affected by cancer. 

Thank you for your support!

I did it! I shaved my head!

Thursday 28th Oct
So this morning I shaved my head. The lovely educators I work with were more than happy to help by firstly cutting my head of plaits, then shaving my head with clippers. I’m so proud and can’t believe I’ve raised so much money. Thank you everyone for your support 

Double donation day this Thursday and Friday!!!

Wednesday 27th Oct
Once last opportunity to boost my donations for this amazing charity. I shave my head tomorrow (Thursday) but can accept donations until the end of Friday 29th Oct. I'll be posting before and after photos and a video (if I can work out how to do it!). Please, if you haven't donated already, please do so this Thursday or Friday. 
Thank you to everyone for your support so far, i'm truly amazed at the support I've received so far!

3 weeks to go!!

Wednesday 6th Oct
I’m shaving my head on Thursday 28th October at 10.30am. That makes it 3 weeks until I do something so huge for me, I just can’t believe it! It’s totally worth the sacrifice as it’s going to a wonderful cause. Cancer sucks big time! Pay up!!
