An extraordinary colleague at HC-One’s Kings Park care home in Ashton-Under-Lyne, Manchester has had all of her hair cut off, to raise money for a charity close to her and the homes heart.
Gail Rabbits, Senior Care Assistant at Kings Park ‘Braved the Shave’ on 27th November, to raise money and awareness for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Gail wanted to take part in the ‘Brave the Shave’ initiative as she has lost family and friends to cancer and wanted to shower her appreciation and gratitude to this amazing charity, that does so much for those suffering from the disease.
Kings Park regularly hold Macmillan coffee mornings, which the Residents, Colleagues and Relatives at the home really enjoy. The coffee mornings are an opportunity for the community to come together in the home but have recently been restricted due to the coronavirus, but this gave Gail even more reason to raise money for the charity.
Lisa Joy, Home Manager at Kings Park was chosen to cut Gail’s hair, which she was more than happy to do. Overall, after gathering donations from Colleagues, friends and family, Gail managed to raise £286 for Macmillan Cancer Support, all on her birthday, too.
“Well done to Gail. I am so proud that you braved the shave for such an amazing charity close to everyone’s heart, you look amazing and a huge ‘Happy Birthday’ also form everyone at Kings park,” said Lisa, Kings Park Home Manager.
