So the countdown has started.
I have decided to support this worthwhile cause in memory of my mum, Liz and her sister Kathleen, plus other family and friends who have had to deal with this illness. I know that the Macmillan team that support my mum and us during this challenging time, did it with care and kindness. Shaving my head is a small gesture of my thanks to them, but your donation will have an impact on someone else's life.
Many thanks to all who have donated so far. For those that have been unable to do there is still plenty of time to donate, so please do.
