 Published on: 2nd October 2019   |   By: News Desk   |   Category: Uncategorized

A fundraising event run by Woodside Residents’ Association (WRA) raised over £1,000 for the Macmillan Cancer Trust last month. 

The charity day, which was held at the Scouts Hut in Woodside on September 21, had an array of delicious cakes and coffee and a raffle which everyone enjoyed. 

To help raise funds, Lorraine Moody, a member of WRA, braved the shave and shaved her head infront of everyone who turned up. 

Lorraine said: “As a group we (WRA) wanted to create and highlight awareness to acknowledge the many people, that are diagnosed with cancer and to those that are going through cancer treatments and losing their hair. 

“Out of great admiration and respect to them, I decided to “Brave The Shave” publicly at our Macmillan Event. I am happy that Taylor Murphy and his apprentice Jago from Perception Male Grooming in Abbots Langley, kindly attended and donated their time and hair skills for our event. 

“We have raised a large amount of money for the wonderful Macmillan nurses and charity, it was an amazing afternoon and thank you so much, to everyone that supported us.”

The event was wonderfully attended by Deputy Mayor Karen Collett, cllr Tim Williams, cllr Richard Wenham, cllr Glen Saffery, Perception Male Grooming and many residents and their families who brought with them, a selection of cakes, that were kindly made and donated to the raising of funds for Macmillan Charity.

WRA chair Lily Hendley said: “We are extremely grateful and we would like to thank the local community, our fantastic volunteers, councillors and all our families and friends, for attending this event and for helping to make this a memorable day and to raise funds, for this very worthy charity.”
