Story

I shall be ditching the razor and allowing my pit tresses to roam free, which I don't normally do.

Why am I doing it? Because I like to jump on any bandwagon that lauds hirsuteness and to raise money for Verity, a charity for women with Polycystic Ovaries.

So please give generously and nurture the woodland creatures growing under my arms. Progress will be documented.

Thanks to all who have donated so far, I am so impressed with how generous you have all been, the more I learn about PCOS the more convinced I am that you are helping me raise money for a very worthy and sadly ignored cause x
