Lisa Gash has taken the phrase ‘all in the name of charity’ to the extreme as she bravely had her locks chopped off for two good causes.
She headed up her event on Sunday (January 6), and has raised a fantastic amount, totalling £1,041.60.
All funds raised from the evening will now be split between the Mablethorpe LIVES First Responders and Cancer Research UK, two charities which are very special to her.
Lisa from Mablethorpe, was thrilled with her final fundraising total.
She told the Leader: “I have wanted to become a fundraiser for a while now and I wanted to raise money for charity by doing something extreme.
“Both charities I have decided to raise money for are ones that are very close to my heart and that of my family and friends.
Lisa’s charity hair cut coincided with a special fundraising event that took place at the Carousel pub in the High Street in Mablethorpe.
Besides the main event of the evening, there was also horse races, face painting, a raffle and a disco that were taking place on the night.
Lisa added: “It’s overwhelming to see the amount of support I have received and to reach £1,000 was brilliant.
“It excelled my initial fundraising target of £300.
“I will definitely be doing more fund raising events in the future, just maybe not having my head shaved again, as it is very cold.”
Lisa continued to say: “I would just like to say a massive thank you to all my friends and family that have supported me throughout the organisation of this event.
“Also some other special mentions must go out to Scott McKay for doing the head shave for me and Linda Horsall, landlady of the Carousel pub in Mablethorpe.
“Finally a big thank you to Dean Martin and Tobie Lee Martin for the fantastic help they gave on the night.”
