I am raising money for a charitable cause that is very important to me so please donate and help me reach my target

Started on 27th April 2020 Cheddon Fitzpaine, England, United Kingdom

I am raising money for cancer research UK. I chose this charity as many people in my life have been affected by it and raising money can help make life for people battling cancer better by trying to find a cure. 1 in 2 women and 1 in 3 men will develop cancer in their lifetime, so raising money for this cause is not only helping those who will fight cancer but also those families who sadly have to grieve as people lose their battles.

Whats you can do-

 Every pound donated makes a difference in someones life. The difference a pound from you could make, especially in times such as these, could be the make or break for someone battling.

What I will be doing-

On the 26th of May 2020 I will be shaving off all 15 inches of my hair and donating it to the princess trust, where it will be made into a wig and given to someone diagnosed with either alopecia, cancer or any other illnesses in which the patient will lose their hair. I decided to do this because for me going bald is a choice, for them it wasn't, and my hair will hopefully spark more joy for them than it ever has for me.

Thank you.
