Sam can’t wait to get his head shaved

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

This year close to 40 people are expected to be taking part in the shave, including a few families and younger children.

Event spokeswoman Kate Daly said: “There’s a woman taking part who works with the Government, she and her daughter are shaving this year. There’s a family with a woman who has shaved before, her husband, son and herself are shaving again and her daughter is going to have her hair cut and will donate it to charity.

“There’s a little boy around age seven who saw a picture of a boy with cancer from overseas and wanted to do the shave in his honour. He and his mom went to the website and looked at the children who were undergoing cancer treatment and his mom contacted us to put the boy’s name up on the website.”

To donate to Sam’s St Baldrick’s fund, visit www.stbaldricks.org/donate and type in: ‘Sam M Bermuda’. There is a full list of participants taking part available through www.stbaldricks.org.
