A Fundraising Birthday Head Shave

How many people would celebrate their birthday by helping three charities and raising over £1,000!

Emma Taylor had sailed with Challenge Wales as a Trainee when she was 18 years old on one of the charity’s Youth Development Voyages which helped her develop her confidence, teamwork and communication skills as well as how to work with other people. Emma then came back and volunteered with Challenge Wales to help pass on what she had learnt onto other young people before setting up her own dog training business.

Emma had been growing her hair for as long as she can remember and felt she wanted to donate it to The Little Princess Trust who make wigs for young people who have lost their hair due to illness. In addition she was shaving her hair and raising money for Challenge Wales and Medical Detection Dogs who detect diseases such as cancer.

The fundraising head shave was filmed live on Facebook and it’s a big thanks to Blu Hair Design who gave their time to cut the hair. Thank You!

Although Emma has exceed her £1,000 target she knows that raising even more money will benefit both Challenge Wales and Medical Detection Dogs to have a bigger impact with their work.
