So for the last month Stu has been raising money for the Shaun Wright Foundation, which is a charity set up in memory of a dear co-worker of his. It aims to raise money for Pancreatic Cancer Action, to fund research into pancreatic cancer, which is sadly lacking.
Monday was the big day! The amazing Mug & Brush in Keelby very kindly opened up especially for the event, offering their services for free, and even putting on nibbles and drinks for everyone attending, fantastic folks! We invited friends and family down for the event and the Grimsby Telegraph came along too.
Rebecca Wright had the first cut, the incredible woman who set up the Shaun Wright Foundation in memory of her husband Shaun. With Stu's fundraising, they are up to just under £30,000 raised since June 2015, a truly stunning amount!
Off the plait came. Then it was onto clipping the rest, then a shave, then a cut throat shave to really make sure Stu's face was properly naked for the first time in a long, long time.
Huge thanks have to go to Karen for setting up the event and opening up her salon to us, and to Laura for the actual shave. It had to be nerve racking with such a crowd of spectators.
And now..... the before and after...
How handsome is my husband? He's a beaut with and without the beard.
Huge thank you to all the readers who sponsored Stu, it was really heartwarming to see donations with comments on saying they read my blog and wanted to donate. Thank you guys so much! If you do want to pop a last minute donation on his justgiving page, I'll pop the link below.
