2nd October 2021 - I Braved the Shave
That was an incredible day! And I am so proud, impressed, touched by everyone who has supported me and sent me wonderful words of encouragement. I am so proud to have raised over £2500 for Macmillan Cancer Support, and donated 50cm length of hair to the Little Princess Trust. If you still want to donate please follow this link: bravetheshave.macmillan.org.uk/shavers/katrina-collins And enjoy the pictures and video from my day.
20th September '21 - Braving the Shave for Macmillan Cancer Care in 2 weeks time
On the 2nd October 2021 I am going to Brave the Shave for Macmillan. And yes I mean shave, with a razor, the full monty, properly bald head. Many of you will not realise just how much hair I have currently because it is always put away for professionalism in a plait or bun of some description, but currently it is about half a meter worth of hair that I have been growing for just over 2 years now with the plan of donating it to the Little Princess Trust (bravo to such an amazing charity) as I have been in regular cycles over the past decade. However, recently I have, very unfortunately, had some people very dear to me, family, friends and clients, touched by cancer. I guess I should be grateful that I have lived to 38 and not before been directly affected. I give thanks for the friends still with us and grieve for the cousin sadly lost. This is when I started thinking... "how I could do something to help?" And this is why I have decided to Brave the Shave. I can't say that I haven't wavered a little in my conviction to do so, moments where I am convinced I am bonkers. But now I have come to it wholeheartedly, it is what I can do that will make a difference, and raise awareness of and money for this fantastic organisation. I'm feeling brave. Please support me, which will support Macmillan Cancer Support to support those who need to find their bravery to survive.
