15/03/17: Even more thanks to people who are still donating! You are wonderful. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone. A different type of confidence is gained when you have hardly any hair, because it's neat all the time! It's a very worth cause and you'll feel great - win win! As always, don't forget to Gift Aid if you can! Love & lollipops, Lynsey -x- ____________________________________ 16/05: Massive thanks and Please keep donating! :D I could still get on the BraveTheShave front page after the event. I am shorn! It does feel weird, there's a video of the event below too! This whole experience has been so exciting and terrifying, but I come on this page every day to read your comments and get a Braveboost! I am So made up about the amount we've raised so far, you are all Fantastic! Lynsey -x- ____________________________________ 06/05: WOWEE!! If your donations go past 800, I could get on the BraveTheShave front page!!! Please keep donating!! This is wonderful. I've put a video below which shows what will happen to my hair. Had been feeling a bit nervous again, but after watching the video, how could you not want to donate as much hair as possible! So pleased at the amount raised for cancer support. Thank you all again soooo much! Lynsey Pinz -x- ___________________________________ 26/04: THANK YOU! For the donations! Every time I start fearing the shearing I come to this page and read the comments. A few days after starting this campaign I woke up to the "What have I done?!", but then reading this page, watching such inspirational videos of others doing the same, just makes me feel dead chuffed that I can. I know the bald look will not suit me! But I also know I'm lucky that this is an optional choice, whereas so many others don't have that option. Please donate, no matter how big or small, and please Gift Aid if you can! Loadsalove, Lyns. -x- ___________________________________ Hello all, I had been thinking about cutting my hair, and was asked if it was for charity, which reminded me that I'd long ago thought of shaving my head for charity (long before Jessie J, dagnabbit!). I realised I must take this opportunity to raise some funds for a worthy cause. Having lost one Aunt to cancer (who really was a special person, the world is definitely less good without her), a father-in-law I didn't even get to meet, and having a wonderful sister who is a cancer survivor, it's close to our family, as it is to so many others. As my hair is so long, I'm lucky to be able to donate most of it to the Little Princess Trust, which provides real hair wigs to children who suffer hair loss due to cancer treatment. Thank you for any donations! Don't forget to GiftAid! Get extra money out of the government for charity! :D Stay groovy people, Lynsey -x-

I lost an aunt to Breast cancer over 25 years ago. My father-in-law had Bowel cancer 20 years ago & has survived & my dad had Prostate cancer last year & has now had the all clear. So I am only too aware of the various forms this terrible illness can present itself by. We need to continue the fight to improve survival rates across the spectrum of cancer illnesses, so every penny helps. Well done Lynsey for braving the shave, From Simon on 12/05/16
