Time to chop the mop & raise money for good cause(s)

by AJ Fielder in Letchworth Garden City, England, United Kingdom

So after 30+ months of growing my hair, I've decided it's time to go back to the shorter style. 

On 7th June (137 Weeks/959days since last) I shall be having my hair chopped. I wanted to use this opportunity to do some good in the local area as well and therefore am looking for sponsorship on this event from friends, family & more as I look to raise funds for: 

• Angels Support Group - 1117059

• Willow Foundation - 1106746

I've chosen these 2 charities as both I believe have a relevancy to my life, having been diagnosed with ADHD in 2014, I'm always keen to support ADHD/ASD charities such as Angels. Furthermore I believe the Willow Foundation is something we can all relate to having lost someone to soon in life to a terminal illness 😢

By selecting these "Local" charities it will also allow me to continue the story & let you know how this money has been used.

In addition to supporting these 2 local charities, if hair is of adequate length I shall then donate the hair to;

• Little Princess Trust 

About the charities:

Angels - supports families of autistic children and/or children who have ADHD (and those awaiting diagnosis). All Angels staff are parents of neurodivergent children.

Willow Foundation - They help 16-40 year olds who suffer from life threatening illnesses/terminal diagnosis ( cancer, huntingdons, MND, cystic fibrosis etc) Every penny is spent on services. 

Little Princess Trust - 

We use lovely long hair donations from our supporters to make our beautiful wigs.

Here you can learn about the lengths of hair we need - and the best ways to cut and send your lovely locks to us! 

Thank you for reading, all donations are greatly appreciated
