Give yourself some wacky hair, to help fund vital local care
WhenAny time you like!
In your own home
For anyone who wants to help provide local care, by having some fun with their hair
With hairdressers closed, and with most people having extra time at home, now is the perfect time to have some fun with your hair, to help provide local care.
The Hospice Hair Raiser gives you the chance to do something funky with your hair and raise money while doing it, whether it's a head shave, hair dye or a home haircut.
Local people are even more reliant on the care provided by North Devon Hospice right now, as isolation causes added difficulties for those facing an incurable illness. But this vital care can only continue with the support of the local community. So please take part in the Hospice Hair Raiser today.
Give yourself a funky hair style, and get sponsored for doing it. Every pound will make a difference and help to provide vital frontline hospice care.
It's easy to get started:
1 - Sign up for free
2 - Decide what you'll do with your hair (whether it's a head shave, hair dye or another idea from the list below)
3 - Set up a Virgin Money Giving page (details below) and share it on social media so people can sponsor you
A great way to help raise as much as possible will be to set a target (e.g. "I'll dye my hair pink if I raise £200). Or, you could even let your friends and family on social media choose your Hair style!
Every pound raised will help local people who are facing an incurable illness, or the loss of a loved one. These people rely on the care of North Devon Hospice, but coronavirus means the ability to raise funds has dropped dramatically. So these are indeed hair-raising times, but we can get through it together.
There are so many ways you can take part in the Hospice Hair Raiser. Here are just a few ideas...
You will often find that the more extreme the cut, the more people will donate!
Not only will you be having some real fun with your hair, you will also be raising funds to help those who are most isolated in our community right now.
People facing an incurable illness, or facing the loss of someone they love, are facing the toughest time of their lives. It's a time when they need their family and friends the most, but of course that's not possible right now, at least not in the same way. The care of the hospice therefore becomes even more vital during these times.
The demand for North Devon Hospice's care has understandably gone up in the last few weeks, but all our fundraising events have had to be cancelled and our charity shops have had to close.
That's why your support is needed, so we can get through this together, and help those in North Devon who are most vulnerable.
Once you've decided to join the Hospice Hair Raiser, raising funds will be easy. People will not only be impressed by your efforts, but also inspired to support the cause, because of how vital frontline hospice care is right now.
Simply click the button below to set up your online giving page. It takes just a couple of minutes, then you can share the link with your friends and followers on social media.
