It’s been 1 month since I had my hair dyed pink and the amount raised is: £578.95!! And when the money is sent of to Cancer Research UK and they add the GiftAid to eligible donations it'll be even more!
So I’ve just come back from The Hair Boutique where I have been officially “de-pinked” and I’m very happy with my new hairdo. I can’t say I haven’t enjoyed the attention this past 4 weeks but it's nice to finally feel a little more inconspicuous again with the black.
I am chuffed to bits with the total and can't thank you all enough! Since starting this fund-raiser I have had a ton of support and everybody who I have spoken to about my pink hair has given me encouragement. Over the weeks many more people shared with me their terrible experiences with cancer, some stories with happy endings and sadly many without.
It's scary to think that one in two people in the UK will develop some form of cancer in their lives when you think about how large our family and friend groups are, but that is the truth of it. Thankfully, chances of surviving cancer are improving as a result of advances being made in science and technology, made possible by everybody who supports the cause and eventually cancer will be beaten.
Thank you everyone for your support and donations, and thanks again to Nicky & Shaun at The Hair Boutique for your generosity and enthusiasm throughout the process! Also a big thanks to Mary Moran who has worked really hard to raise a significant part of this total, you’re a star!
For any final donations please CLICK HERE and visit my JustGiving page, I will be sending the money off in the next few days and posting the final total when Cancer Research works it all out.
