Abi and the rest of the Beale family would like to say a huge thank you to all of you for supporting bad hair day at Towcester. We raised an incredible 1105, made up from:
cake and coffee morning sat = 130
cake and coffee morning sun = 240
raffle = 245
saturday night shavings & waxings & donations = 473
kids conker pictures sun = 17

The Alopecia Areata Support Community has been a great support to us, and the money will help them to be able to continue to support others like us learning to cope with Alopecia.

Hopefully the event has also enabled you to discuss conditions like Alopecia with friends and family - I know that it has lead to at least one school assembly and a the subject of a cub scout meeting. Raising awareness for the condition is incredibly important, as it is heartbreaking to deal with the distress of an 8 year old who has just overheard a parent telling a child what a shame it is that she is so ill.

Particular thanks are owed to Mick & Conrad who were the wax victims and Sam for doing the honours, Rupert and Gemma for their head shaves and Sue & Alison for doing the shaving. Team Drew and Team Gill for an expensive cake habit, Anita and Gill and all the cake makers (especially Claire), sellers and eaters, Sue for the raffle and everyone who donated, and Prickle for waxing lyrical, and finally Andrea for supervising the conker picture making all day Sunday! And every one of you for being game!

Thanks again for your support. I love this club!
