Martin McColls, Borehamwood, worker to have head shaved for Stand Up for Cancer
It will be a case of hair today gone tomorrow when a “daddy’s girl” shaves her head for a cancer charity.
Tanya Weaver, of Easton Gardens, Borehamwood, will go for the chop in memory of her father, Bryan, who died of stomach cancer in 2008.
Money raised from her gesture will be be given to charity Stand Up for Cancer, and she has set herself an ambitious target of raising £500.
The 45-year-old said: “My dad was the best dad in the world and I miss him so much. I was a real daddy’s girl, so that’s why I want to do this.
“I’m not nervous about it, in comparison to what my dad went through this is nothing. Plus, I need a hair cut at the moment anyway.
“I think I will suit short hair and I’m really not that bothered about it at all. It grows quickly and if my head gets cold in the winter, I will just wear a hat.”
Ms Weaver will have her red and brown locks cut at 1pm tomorrow (Wednesday, October 16) at her workplace in Martin McColls, Howard Drive, Borehamwood.
So far, she has raised almost £200 from donations from customers but is calling on more people to support her.
Ms Weaver added: “ I don’t mind how much I raise - every penny counts in my eye although it would be great to be able to give the charity a huge amount.
“I really hope people from the community come down and support me and watch me having this done.”
