Raising funds for Pushing Up Daisies

Help me let go of my hair

In January 2019 I will be letting go of my hair but this has not been an easy decision and now I am hoping to make it into something that feels meaningful.

Our local community death festival will be happening again in 2019!!! The dates are official: Saturday 11th to Saturday 18th May, 2019

For a week there will be all kinds of events exploring all kinds of aspects of death and dying. There will be workshops, talks, films, creative stuff and performances.

All events are free but donations are welcome. The money goes towards necessities like printing programs, paying for venues and keeping us all going on tea, coffee and biscuits.

Everybody is volunteering their time and energy and at the heart of the festival is the hope that together we can build more compassionate communities.

Raising funds for our local community Festival ‘Pushing Up Daisies’.


So what will happen?

I will be doing my best to raise funds online and locally during November and December and then in January (date tbc) I will have my hair cut off at a Pushing Up Daisies Open Meeting.

Once my hair is off my head I will be donating it to The Little Princess Trust  who provides real hair wigs free of charge to children and young adults up to the age of 24, who have sadly lost their own hair due to cancer treatment and other illnesses.
