Hospiscare Heroes - Headshaves for Hospiscare!


This week we've got some fantastic stories about supporters who have shaved their heads for Hospiscare! Read on to find out how and why! 
 

Sally shaves her head

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


A massive thank you to Sally Burt from Okehampton, who shaved her head in memory of her cousin Shelly Clarke. Shelly was a Hospiscare patient in 2015 while she was suffering from Breast Cancer; she was 46 years old.  Sally had fantastic support from the London Inn in Okehampton where she did the head shave as well as Whitehouse Services in Okehampton who allowed Sally to do bucket collection there before the event.  

Sally said, “Some people have said ‘you’re brave to shave your hair off’ but I don’t see it as brave. The people going through chemo are the ones I consider to be brave. I am lucky that I have the choice about my hair, where others unfortunately don’t have the choice and lose it due to treatment. 

“I’m not bothered about how I will look with no hair and I’m sure if Shelly was still with us she’d be saying ‘go on Sal’.

“If shaving my hair off helps to support someone going through a really difficult time then I am more than happy to do it. Raising money by shaving my head is my family’s way of saying thank you to the hospice for all the support they provided Shelly and the family.”

Thanks to Aimee at Eclipse Hair Salon, the London Inn, Bedknobs and Broomsticks in Sourton and Sally’s family and friend for their generous support. In total, Sally raised £1,495 – so thank you Sally!

A huge thank you also goes to Hannah and Ian Stoyle and to all the participants of Haircut100. Over 35 people had their heads shaved in the centre of Crediton on July 23rd and together they raised over £11,600 for Hospiscare. 

Hannah said: “Two years ago we lost our brother to cancer. He spent his last few weeks staying with Hospiscare in Exeter.

“The level of care, support, understanding and professionalism was truly amazing, as I’m sure those of you who have come into contact with this service already know.”

Hannah would like to thank R and G Barbers, Nikki Blanchford Hairdressing, The Three Little Pigs, The Green House, Tesco, The Farmers’ Market, Jo Ward Electrical Services, Hospiscare Fundraising Team, Mid Devon District Council and Crediton Town Council, Sandie Blake, Andrew Drayton, Jason Cliff, and Hannah Stubbs for all their support and for making the event happen.

And finally, a massive thank you goes to Petula Schubert, who shaved her head in the Mitre pub, raising a fantastic £850. A big thank you goes to the Mitre and its staff, as well as everyone who has supported Petula and sponsored her.
