Brave Christine raises with Big Buzz fundraiser

Christine becomes a life shaver

Christine wanted to show support for the children and young people she comes into contact with on a daily basis by shaving her hair off as part of the Big Buzz.

Christine also managed to convince her co-worker, Jennifer Stevenson, to become a life shaver and take part to help raise funds for children and young people with cancer.

A few days after shaving her hair, Christine said: 

"I wish I done it years ago! I'm really enjoying the freedom of not being tied to the shackles of my “crazy hair”. 

When asked about people's reactions, she said: "The children and families visiting the hourse have not batted an eyelid. And infact, when they found out that I had done it for the charity some of them ended up sponsoring me, which I found quite overwhelming."

Christine is now looking forward to picking out a few new hats for the winter and she also can't wait for it to grow a few inches so she can do a "Jessie J".
