Hair for Hospices Day - 7th August 2012
‘Hair for Hospices Day’ is the brain child of Reading-based Jack Kay, who has made it his mission to introduce a national ‘Hair for Hospices Day’ in memory of his wife, who sadly passed away from cancer last year. Her last month was spent at their local Hospice in Reading therefore the Kay family are working tirelessly to promote the need for Hospice care across the UK and abroad and to importantly raise vital funds for such Hospices.
Jack is keen to get other people involved for ‘Hair for Hospices Day’ to support their local Hospice. He said: “The overall purpose of the day will be to raise international awareness of the need for Hospices everywhere and to raise funds for Hospices local to where people participate in our day of action by doing something visible to their hair”. Jack is going to shave off his 38 year-old beard to raise funds for the Hospice where his wife was cared for, and he is also encouraging people to do something with their hair to raise money for their local hospice on ‘Hair for Hospices Day’ on the 7th August 2012!
On the 7th August why not get sponsored and
- colour your hair for the day
- wear unusual ribbons in your hair
- shave off a beard or moustache
- wear a brightly coloured wig
in order to raise vital funds for East Cheshire Hospice!!
