Family and friends of Abigail, who is undergoing cancer treatment have raised over £5,000 by shaving their heads in support of children and young people with cancer, and their families.
Abigail's mum Lindsay and her friends have helped reach the £5,000 fundraising goal by taking part in CLIC Sargent's Big Buzz event and becoming ‘life shavers’.
After Abigail was diagnosed with cancer in 2012, her family was introduced to CLIC Sargent Social Worker Sue who helped provide them with emotional, practical and financial support.
Abigail’s mum Lindsay explains: "Sue has been by our sides throughout our journey and has provided support to us at what was a very difficult time, we cannot thank her enough for the care and support she has shown.”
Lindsay's friend Kathleen asked her to get involved in a Big Buzz party she was throwing, and be sponsored to shave her head.
Lindsay and Kathleen joined their friends Jill and Tucker to become 'life shavers', shaving their heads and also being sponsored to wax their legs.
The Big Buzz party was a great success and people enjoyed music, a tombola stall and a raffle, whilst supporting the group shaving their heads. A children’s disco was also held with games and refreshments for Abigail and her friends to enjoy.
Be a ‘life shaver’
Since 2010, hundreds of supporters have shown their solidarity for young cancer patients and shaved their heads, raising over £400,000 in aid of CLIC Sargent.
