I'm fundraising to raise money for Cancer Research UK

During the lockdown situation in the UK, I'm sure a lot of people shared the frustration of hair dressers being closed. Meaning people were left with a choice of what they were wanting to do with it. Personally I just decided to leave mine to grow naturally. I had debated growing my hair for a while and this gave me an excuse! But as the lockdown contiues, I decided to make a positive from the situation.
Which is why I have decided that I will continue to grow it even after hair dressers re-open. For each month I go without getting it cut, I will personally donating £15 to this fundraiser.
I am hoping to reach £350 by January 2021 (this will mark 1 whole year since my last hair cut). I know this is a long shot, which is why how ever short I am from the target by this time, I will be donating the rest to get to that £350 mark.
Depending on my hair length by that time, I may continue to let or grow or do a head shave. Donating my hair to companies who make wigs for those suffering with hair loss due to chemotherapy. If I do choose to continue to grow it for another year, I will be extending the target then to £800. But we'll cross that bridge when we come to it!
I hope you will all get behind this cause. Cancer has impacted my family greatly, and is something very close to my heart.
Together with enough donations, we will help find a cure for this!
