Shop staff set to ‘Brave the Shave’

By timesecholife on in All News, Community News

Staff at a town centre shop are set to ‘brave the shave’ together – all in aid of charity. The team of six from Bargain Booze Plus on Cheadle’s High Street will be having their locks cut off in a bid to raise lots of cash for the Douglas Macmillan Hospice.

Staff at a town centre shop are set to ‘brave the shave’ together – all in aid of charity.

The team of six from Bargain Booze Plus on Cheadle’s High Street will be having their locks cut off in a bid to raise lots of cash for the Douglas Macmillan Hospice.

The Brave the Shave is set to take place on Saturday, May 7, outside the shop itself, weather permitting; and a local barber and a hairdresser are giving up their time for free to carry out ‘the chops.’

The fundraising team is made up of Andy Beynon, Christine Broad, Diane Platt, George Lewis, James Lovatt, and Nicola Cooper.

Nicola told the Cheadle & Tean Times: “We are having a head shave on Saturday, May 7 at 10am, hopefully outside the shop, weather permitting.

We are raising funds for the Douglas Macmillan Hospice in memory of a man that passed away last year at a young age as well as in memory of a former work colleague and friend as well as some of our relatives.

There is six of us – five staff plus the lady who lost her partner – shaving our heads, with those of us with long hair donating our hair to the Princess Trust.

We have Lewis Gallacher from Sidney’s Barber Shop and Kath Dutton a local mobile hairdresser who are kindly giving up their time to do the cutting and shaving.”

Nicola added: “We want to try and raise as much money as possible.

We will be decorating the shop closer too, as Douglas Macmillan have been brilliant in supplying us with t-shirts, balloons and collection buckets and posters etc.”

On the day of the Brave the Shave, the team aim to ‘go live’ for the ‘hair raising’ challenge, and will also have donation buckets on the day for people to donate.

Diane further stated on the group’s online Justgiving fundraising page: “The Douglas Macmillan Hospice and its staff took very good care of my partner Carl Cornwall who was diagnosed with Lung Cancer in April 2021.

They were also very supportive to myself throughout this time and I am extremely grateful for all their kindness.

So myself and friends came up with the idea for ‘Brave the Shave’ to give something back and help others in similar circumstances.”

As of Monday, the group had, so far, raised a total of £855 on their Justgiving webpage.
