My story

[p]In July 2019 a group of 50+ students from Christ's Hospital including myself will be going to Kitale, Kenya in order to support the charity 'Classrooms for Kenya' by assisting in the building of six new brick classrooms to replace the dangerous mud classrooms. As a school we need to raise £36.000 in order to do this so please donate and support this great cause![/p][p]To personally support this, on the 29th [b][u]June 2019 I am going to shave my head completely and be bald[/u][/b] before I go to Kenya, all money from sponsors or donations will contribute to the cost of these new classrooms which are crucial in order to allow the right of a safe education environment for the children. [/p][p]I am also shaving my head to raise awareness for Cancer Research, Although, the donations will not go there, my actual hair will be donated to the Little Princess Trust through Macmillan's "Brave the Shave" campaign. Shaving my head for cancer represents an act of solidarity with my mother who passed away and to the other strong women in my life who are still fighting. [/p][p]The shaving will be livestreamed and I am growing my hair out until the date. The countdown begins! [/p][p][br][/p][p]Thanks in advance![/p][p][br][/p]

We are also bald. Your slap head will recover; ours, alas, is rather more permanent. An amazing effort - enormous respect and luck to you.
