St Mary’s Hospital Matrons Julie Hailes and Jan Appell at Isle of Wight NHS Trust have braved the shave to help raise funds for Mountbatten Hospice.
Doing something drastic
They decided in order to reach fundraising target they needed to do something drastic.
So they took the plunge and decided to shave their hair off. Announcing their decision in a team meeting their colleagues were really surprised.
Brave and admirable thing to do
Sara Henderson, another matron at St Mary’s Hospital, said,
“I was really shocked when they told us they were going to shave their hair off. It is such a brave and admirable thing to do and it is for a great cause.”
Julie and Jan have already raised £400 of their £500 target, well done!
