In 23 days, I’ll be shaving my head. 21 inches of hair down to none at all. It’s generated more questions than you’d think.
These, for example:
1. You’re what?
I’m shaving my head.
2. You’re what??
I’m. Shaving. My. Head.
3. What for?
Because Claire House needs £6,500 every single day to keep doing what they do.
4. But why shave your head?
I have very little spare time and even less spare cash. I do have a lot of hair and I’m hoping people will donate a shed load of cash to see me cut it off.

5. Aren’t you brave?
Nope. Excited…terrified... exified!
6. What if your head’s a funny shape?
I’ll buy an odd shaped hat.
7. What if you find a ‘666’ tattoo on your scalp?
It’s not on my scalp.
8. Are you sure?
Yup. Defo not on my scalp. Oh, the shaving thing? Sure or not – it’s happening!
Claire House Children's Hospice
Claire House is all about laughter, positivity and care.
Located on the Wirral, the hospice provides respite, end-of-life and bereavement care for children and young adults with complex medical needs. They're also there to support the whole family, providing support and counselling for as long as is needed.
Their specialist nursing team also works in the community through their Hospice to Home scheme, which offers care and support in the family home.
They look after families from across Merseyside, Cheshire, North Wales, West Lancashire and the Isle of Man and provide a home-from-home environment for their children and young people, helping enrich their lives so they can live them to the full. During their stay at Claire House, each child has at a minimum of one-to-one care. They can spend time in a hydrotherapy pool, enjoy a music therapy session, sing karaoke, or take part in arts and crafts therapy.
The whole family can be there with them, with private bedrooms and a lounge for Mum and Dad to unwind and take a break from their role of carers.
I can't think if a better reason to lose a couple of feet of keratin. If you agree, then the Just-Giving link is below.
