Sponsored Head Shave to Support Cheltenham Open Door Charity

Cheltenham

Sunday 12th July 2020

11.00 am live from Blushes Hairdressers in Cheltenham

Cheltenham-based Alex MacEachern is planning a sponsored head shave to raise funds for local homeless charity Cheltenham Open Door. She will also donate all 24 inches of her hair to the Little Princess Trust.

Alex said "Both charities are so important as, at the moment, we've been told to stay home as much as possible to save lives, but not everyone has the luxury of having a home to stay in. Cheltenham Open Door is a charity that provides food, friendship and support to relieve poverty, hardship and distress.

At the beginning of lockdown, many of us were initially complaining about how we could only buy necessities but the guests who go to Open Door would do anything to have that at any time, let alone during a global pandemic."

Alex continues "The Little Princess Trust is a charity that supplies wigs for children and young people who have lost their hair due to severe illness. My mum had cancer twice, the second time with chemo so lost all her hair. Seeing how her confidence grew through having a wig was just beautiful. My hair will grow back again but some children and young adults have illnesses that mean they can never grow hair again."

You can watch Alex take the chop live on Facebook and Instagram.
