Chris creates a buzz with head shave for CLIC Sargent

Chris Dodd braved the clippers as part of the CLIC Sargent’s Big Buzz fundraiser, which encourages people to shave their heads in support of young cancer patients, many of whom lose their hair during treatment.

On the day, Chris was encouraged by keen family members and friends who watched as his head was shaved. So far Chris has raised £560 for CLIC Sargent with more funds still coming in.

Chris said: “If doing this has helped to raise a small of amount of money and a large amount of awareness then it can only be a good thing. It's interesting to see how many people are willing to pay to see me bald.”

CLIC Sargent's Big Buzz Event Manager, Anna Penwarden said: “I’d like to say a huge thank you to Chris for becoming a ‘life-shaver’ for CLIC Sargent.

Many children and young people with cancer lose their hair during treatment and our Big Buzz campaign gives you the chance to show support for them by shaving your head and raising money for CLIC Sargent.”
