A staff nurse in our Endoscopy team has now ‘braved the shave’ to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support – and has so far raised over £500 for the cause.
Sharon Martin moved up her fund-raising efforts and shaved her head to raise funds earlier this month but you can still make a donation either by visiting our Endoscopy department or by going online.
Sharon, who braved the shave in memory of a friend’s husband, says; “Cancer affects us all, it’s hellish but it can be made more bearable by the care of a wonderful Macmillan nurse. If, by losing my hair, I can help fund a nurse to support someone else then I will be happy.”
She has so far raised £390 online, £120 via sponsorship and £30 in bucket donations.
A sponsor form is available in the Endoscopy department, along with a collection bucket, or you can make a donation online at https://bravetheshave.macmillan.org.uk/shavers/sharon-martin .
