Keanna was faced with many hospital visits at the Bristol Haematology & Oncology Centre. Whilst there she noticed the support from Teenage Cancer Trust nurses - often described as 'guardian angels'!
In support of their co-worker, and to raise money for the charity she spoke so highly of, Lisa, Lorraine and Martyn decided to shave their heads for charity. The response they received was phenomenal.
On August 23rd the Eldon Insurance office came out to see their three colleagues having their heads shaved by Keanna, Leanne & Nicole and the donations poured in on their Just Giving page. The fundraising didn't stop there: the company also held a raffle in the office, a pub quiz at the local pub and a raffle at a cider festival in Long Ashton. Eldon Insurance also kindly agreed to match what was raised, bringing their total up to an amazing £7,398.58.
We are overwhelmed by the generosity and support from our colleagues, friends and family. Although we’ll have cold heads this winter, it was totally worth it to support such an amazing charity who ensure no young person or their family face cancer alone.
You can watch the video of their head shave on the Regional Facebook page here. Thank you Eldon Insurance!
