Ali creates a buzz with head shave

Ali Mansfield decided she wanted to raise money for CLIC Sargent, and help support children and young people with cancer by shaving off all her hair.

Ali creates a buzz with head shave

Ali, a teacher from Tavistock, became a LifeShaver on the 2 June when her friend Sarah took out the clippers and shaved off her hair.
The newly crowned LifeShaver said: “I had shoulder-length hair and decided to shave my head in aid of helping my chosen charity CLIC Sargent.

I was not afraid of having my head shaved, nor what people will think or how I will look.

“I would like to give families and their young children the hope to continue to fight their battle and carry on to win!

“Unfortunately my friend’s cousin is currently going through cancer and she is worried about losing her hair. So, I decided to shave my head in aid of her cousin and to show her she can fight her illness, as well as not being worried about what she will look like.

“I want to show that we are all beautiful but our real beauty isn't something we put on the outside of our bodies. We are most beautiful when our hearts are loving others. Our beauty comes from within us.”

Making a difference

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Jordan Anderton said: ”What Ali has done is incredible; every day 10 children and young people hear the devastating news they have cancer.

"Many will lose their hair during treatment, and Ali taking on the Big Buzz shows these young people that there is no need to be afraid or worried about losing your hair.”

To sponsor Ali please make a donation on her official JustGiving page.
