On the 6th April we received a message from James Harrett from Salford which read

"I am being sponsored to shave my head in a few days time, and will be donating the proceeds to your cause. My first proper haircut in 12 years!"

Before James  has it shaved off!

True to his word, without any publicity and with a handful of his friends watching James did the deed as promised !

James raised an amazing £256 for The Sophie Lancaster Foundation, he said

"I've been blown away by how supportive my friends, family and colleagues have been. As an added bonus, I found out there are charities that take donated hair to make wigs for children; I'll be keeping the ponytail intact to send on to one of those, most likely the Little Princess Trust. That way I can help two causes in one go!"

Blad as a coot! -  well done James  :0)When I asked James what it was like to have short hair after 12 years he said

"I'm starting to get used to having no/short hair now... In fact, I kind of like it :) ......

I'm just glad to be doing something to help."

Thanks James and all your generous friends for your support.
