Braving The Shave!!

One of our team members, Gillian, is soon to be ‘Braving the Shave’ to fundraise for MacMillan Cancer Support!!

Gillian is raising funds and awareness for this very worthy cause in memory of her best friend, Sara Barker, and another friend’s husband, Grahame Booth – both of whom lost their battles with cancer.

The shave is taking place on Saturday 12th October – and we’ll be sure to share the ‘after’ pictures as soon as possible!

The pic above shows Gillian’s current hairstyle (lots of long hair) – so the shave will be a dramatic – and rather cold – change as we head into the winter months!

To find out more about the fundraising effort, and to donate to this fantastic cause, please take a look here: https://bravetheshave.macmillan.org.uk/shavers/gillian-humphrey
