The BIG Shave
We did it
On 7th November 2018 we successfully raised £340 with 28 supporters in 28 days

I'm raising money for Forever Hounds Trust and EKK Jena e.V. Two amazing charities who had a great impact on my life.

Life is good! But I am having a bit of a bad hair day! Just getting rid of my locks seems a bit of a waste so I thought why not support my two favourite charities at the same time. Elterninitiative für krebskranke Kinder Jena e.V. (EKK-Jena) and Forever Hounds Trust both have a special place in my heart.

When my son Jimi was 4 years old he was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia and was treated at the Universitätsklinikum Jena. For the 9 month we were there EKK-Jena helped Jimi and us on a daily basis by offering accommodation for parents, activities and lots and lots of moral and social support. It was a tough, worrying time but it was also a time of joy and friendship despite everything that was going on. Thank you EKK-Jena for being there and bringing positivity, support and a little happiness into the lives of so many children and parents.

The second charity I like to support with the BIG shave is Forever Hounds Trust who have been part of my life for the past 6 years since adopting our adorable greyhound girl Sushi. Forever Hounds trust do an amazing job rescuing, rehabilitating and homing greyhounds and lurchers in need. The dogs we take in come from all walks of life: retired greyhounds, abandoned lurchers, members of the public, dog wardens and so on. Many of them are in poor condition when they get to us and need lots of TLC before they are ready for their forever homes.

What both charities need to fulfil their mission are funds and this is where you come in.

Life is good; for most of us. But there are humans and animals alike that need our help because for them life is not so great. Your donation can help make to make a real difference to their lives. So please be generous and give what you can spare. It would be fantastic to reach my target and will make going bald so much easier.

Thank you :)
