Headshave total keeps on growing
4:00pm Sunday 19th August 2012 in Keighley
A head shave and fun day is on course to raise £3,000 for Manorlands.
Pub landlady Heather Mahomet decided to shed her locks in support of a friend, Vicky Kayley, who had lost her hair due to chemotherapy treatment for cancer.
And Heather - of the Globe Inn at Parkwood Street, Keighley - sought sponsorship in aid of the Oxenhope Sue Ryder hospice.
Several male regulars at the pub joined in by having their legs waxed and “karaoke king” Chris Briggs had his back treated.
And there was a bouncy castle and slide and a large dunk tank.
Heather said: “The dunk tank proved particularly popular, despite it being a cold summer`s day!”
She added: “It was a fantastic day and I`m so grateful to everyone who took part for their generous support. We are well on our way to raising £3,000 for Manorlands which is a superb result.”
Matthew Binns, community fundraiser at the hospice, said: “We are very grateful to Heather for choosing to support such a worthy cause in such a wacky way.
“All the money that Heather receives will go towards caring for people suffering from life-limiting illnesses in the community.”
