Plucky Zoe’s brave shave for charity

Section:  Annan and Eskdale, Dumfries and West, Lockerbie and Lochmaben, Moffat  | Tags: ,

TWO FRIENDS are taking a short cut to raising cash for a good cause this spring.

SHAVE rave BA 2

Sarah Dent, left, who runs SJ Barbers at The Green, Eastriggs will be shaving the head of her plucky pal Zoe Nixon to boost Cancer Research UK funds.

The stunt will be the main attraction at a ‘Brave the Shave’ event being staged inside and in front of the shop on the afternoon of Saturday May 20.

Two male customers of the shop have also volunteered to have their beard shaved off in exchange for sponsorship for the charity.

There will also be a cake stall, raffle and other attractions followed by a buffet sponsored and hosted by the near-by Graham Arms Pub.

The two 24-year-old former Annan Academy pupils came up with the idea because they admire the work of the charity and have known a number of people who have suffered from various forms of cancer.

Zoe, who works for the NHS at the Cumberland Infirmary, said: “It’s quite a daunting prospect having all my hair cut off but it’s all for such a good cause. I’ve been told it will take about a year to grow back again. “

Stylist Sarah added: “It’s very brave of Zoe. What she is doing has created a great deal of interest in the event and charity.”

The girls have set an ambitious target of raising £2000 and are already well on the way with £1422 so far.

Donations can be made at the shop or through a JustGiving page.
