A close shave. Can you help?

A good friend who was coming to Lib Dem conference was going to shave all of my hair off, for Cancer Research, at the Glee Club on the last night of conference. This has all been agreed with the Hotel and the Glee Club thanks to the efforts of Gareth Epps and the conference office.

However, my hairdresser cannot make it. So, if you know any hairdressers with a pair of clippers coming to conference who are able to give me a close shave for a good cause at the Glee Club, please put them in touch.

In the meantime, I still need sponsors, so if you can donate £5 or any amount, please do so here.

Cancer affects so many people. One of my grandmothers died of cancer, another grandfather had it when he died. My sister in law died from colon cancer in her 40s. A work colleague died from a brain tumour several years ago. A friend’s sister is currently fighting cancer.

Having dealt with some mental health problems at the beginning of this year, I decided to do something positive, and give something back.
