Tracey becomes a LifeShaver

A 35-year-old company director from Sandhurst is turning heads with her new look after becoming a LifeShaver and raising over £1,000 for children and young people with cancer.

Tracey Broady braved the clippers as part of CLIC Sargent's Big Buzz event, which encourages people to shave their heads to support children and young people with cancer, many of whom lose their hair during treatment.

Tracey’s sponsored head shave was carried out by her niece Ella. Tracey took on this challenge because Ella, seven, has been supported by CLIC Sargent for the past year.

Giving something back

Tracey said: “My seven-year-old niece has just finished a year long course of chemotherapy, operations and radiotherapy.

"We as a family are so grateful for all that CLIC Sargent has done to help. This is just a small way to try to give something back.

“I'm actually enjoying not having to do my hair! And my niece enjoyed shaving my head immensely.

"In just one month I’ve raised over £1,000, which is double what I had hoped for. Thank you to everyone who sponsored me.”

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Victoria Williams said: “I’d like to say a huge thank you to Tracey for becoming a LifeShaver for CLIC Sargent. I think the finished result looks great.

“Every day ten children and young people hear the devastating news they have cancer.

"Many will lose their hair during treatment and our Big Buzz event gives you the chance to show support for them by shaving your head and raising money for CLIC Sargent.”
