Alison’s new look after charity shave
After having her head shaved on Sunday (10 June), one Crawley woman is sporting a fresh look.
A woman from Crawley has a new look after she donated all of her hair to the Little Princess Trust.
Alison Slade has raised just under £2,500. The money she raised will go to The Olive Tree Cancer Support Centre.
The Olive Tree Cancer Support Centre is a local cancer support centre located by Crawley Hospital. They are the only centre in the area, serve Sussex and Surrey and are entirely run by volunteers. They offer counselling, complimentary therapies, support, advice and act as a key point of contact for cancer patients, their families, carers and children.
Alison decided to raise the money for the Crawley based support centre after her husband Graham was diagnosed with bladder cancer in 2015.
“Our world changed.
“There’s nothing worse than watching someone you love suffering and not being able to do anything about it.
“These people kept me sane and supported me. I could turn up hating the world or be on my knees ready to give up. These people never judged me, patronized me or rolled their eyes. Always a warm welcome, the obligatory kettle went on and I’d leave feeling stronger.”
Now, with a fresh look, Alison says:
“My head shave had a slight twist at the end. After the initial shave I went shaving foam and razor bald.”
“I’m just overwhelmed by the support and generosity of everyone.
“Hardest thing is how strangers perceive me. A small child in a shop made the queue aware that I was bald. To which the mum replied ‘shhhh she’s a poorly lady’. Obviously I put her right.”
Alison had her hair cut at Rock Paper Scissors in Ifield Green on Sunday (10 June) by Paul Newell, the co-owner.
You can still show Alison your support and donate via her JustGiving page.
