A Close Shave

Today in the foyer of Bristol Royal Hospital for Children there was an unusual sight, 3 nurses from the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit had their hair shaved off to raise money for an outside play area and parents facilities for the new Paediatric Oncology/BMT unit opening at the end of this year.

Kerry, Pete and Bex had a target of £2000 to raise for the Wallace and Gromit’s Grand Appeal, (the official charity for the Children’s Hospital), and at the time of writing they were about £100 short of that amount.

No going back


Kerry, Pete and Bex


It is still possible to donate to this amazing cause by visiting Kerry’s page at this email address –  http://www.justgiving.com/sponsor-shave.  How fantastic would it be for them to far exceed their target.

      And braver than me, it’s just a shame that nurses and other generous members of the public have to raise money this way for facilities and equipment that should be provided by the government. But don’t get me started!!!
