Brave Drayton Court trio thanked by residents after charity head shave
Drayton Court resident Margaret Armes couldn't wait to get stuck in with the clippers when she shaved the heads of three brave Drayton Court staff who raised over £1,100 for good causes.
Sue Quarmby, Sharon Harbut and Carol Reeves, who all work at Drayton Court in Camp Hill, all had years' worth of hair-growth sacrificed for the fundraiser last Friday. The hair will go to the Little Princess Trust to be used in wigs for children undergoing chemotherapy. Sponsorship money raised will be split between Macmillan, Breast Cancer Awareness and Drayton Court's Residents' fund to pay for one-off treats like days out.
Margaret Armes, who lives at Drayton Court, fancied having a go with the clippers herself and so volunteered to help out. She said: "The ladies felt a little nervous at first but they were all very brave. Everyone who came to the event showed their appreciation and support, even digging a little deeper into their pockets for an extremely good cause.
"It was rather a shock to see the girls with no hair but I'd like to thank everyone for such a wonderful day and for being so selfless in aid of charity, especially Sue, Sharon and Carol."
Carol, a Lead Carer at Drayton Court, added: "There was a great atmosphere created by all the spectators who came along to watch and the fact that there were three of us made it less nerve racking.
"I'd like to thank everyone who's donated, and Sharon and Sue for roping me into it in the first place! It feels great to raise money for such a good cause."
