Prostate & Helen Rollason Charity Appeals

Prostate & Helen Rollason Charity Appeals

We have three different charity events coming up that would benefit from locals digging deep into their pockets.  First up:

A Shave for Prostate – 26th April

No, this isn’t a take on Movember, but local student Caitlin Williams-Macklin who will be shaving her hair on Thursday 26th April at the 6th Form College.  As she says:

My grandad has had prostate cancer for a year and a half now. He’s had to deal with kidney cancer as well, so he had it removed. The prostate cancer spread to his bones so he had to have his leg pinned. In addition to that the hormones causes him to have hot flushes and since having surgery on his leg, sitting down for a long time is hard unless he has a few pillows. Recently, he has spinal cord compression due to the cancer and had surgery to remove the tumour.

(Ed: See the before picture on the right, methinks this hasn’t been undertaken lightly.)

Visit Caitlin’s JustGiving page to donate to this worthy cause.
