Lisa’s lockdown head shave

By timesecholife on in All News, Community News

A LANDLADY shaved off her hair as part of a fund-raiser for the NHS. Lisa Cowell, landlady at the Bagot Arms in Abbots Bromley, has raised more than £1,800 after shaving her locks off in lock down. Lisa sat on a stool outside the pub on Sunday as her son, James, shaved off her hair.

Lisa, 51, said: “I got a bit nervous when my son was cutting around my ears, but it was fantastic, we had a really good time. Lots of people came out to support me. It can be a bit lonely to sit in the street and have your head shaved, so it was lovely to see so many people coming out to watch and cheer me on.

“Everyone was keeping to the social distancing rules and having a good time. I’m a bit cold now around the back of my neck, but I’m getting used to it and I like it. I think I’ll grow it a little bit longer, but not much. Quite a few people have said it suits me and I like it, so I’m going to keep it pretty short.”

Husband Dave shared the event by live streaming it on the pub’s Facebook page where more than 1,900 people have viewed it. Lisa added: “I’ve raised over £1,800 with some more still coming in. I can’t believe I’ve raised nearly £2,000, it’s just brilliant – I’m really chuffed to have raised so much money. I just want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has donated and shown their support.

“It’s all about saying thank you to NHS workers who are putting themselves on the frontline during this crisis. I thought of the people who have died, including the doctors and nurses – it’s just horrendous. I want to support our NHS, which we should be supporting at any time, but particularly now when they are facing this. I also just wanted to put it out there that we need to keep our distance and protect the NHS.
