Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

My lovely nan and good friend Roger both suffered a stroke, and the Stroke Association do wonderful research into prevention and recovery for stroke sufferers. The Island Trust are a charity that have helped me personally a great deal with all aspects of life; offering disadvantaged young people the chance to experience something completely new and develop core life skills in an environment unlike any other.

I have set a date of 9th March for the big shave off. Hopefully in that time we can raise a good amount of money. I still can’t believe I’m not going to have any hair whatsoever!
