Life shaver local
Coleford local William Hale, is going even further for the cause by shaving his head on the night. It is all part of the Big Buzz campaign, which encourages people to become life shavers to support children and young people with cancer, many of whom lose their hair during treatment.
William said: “I’m shaving my head for CLIC Sargent as part of our annual fundraiser in honour of Grace Russell who has fought a dignified battle with breast cancer. Her reconstructive surgery will be on 27 February and are all so excited.
“I feel excited about shaving off my massive hair, we've had some wild and wacky hair moments over the last 14 months. But children and young people being treated for cancer don’t have a choice about losing their hair. I know the money is going to a fantastic cause in CLIC Sargent and that is what’s inspiring me to go through with it."
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Caroline Marshall said: “I’d like to say a huge thank you to Grace and William for organising such a wonderful event and for joining the life shaver team.
“Every day 11 children and young people hear the devastating news they have cancer. Many will lose their hair during treatment and the Big Buzz campaign gives you the chance to show support for them by shaving your head and raising money for CLIC Sargent.
“It’s amazing to have such fantastic local support for young lives facing cancer.”
