£5,645raised of £2,000 target by 203 supporters

    Weʼve raised £5,645 to Ellen's wig fund

    Basingstoke, UK
    Funded on Friday, 2nd November 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Ellen, my partner, was recently diagnosed with HER2+++ breast cancer, so to support her through her chemotherapy, I am getting rid of my big ol' barnet!

    This came on incredibly quickly, and with no history of it in her family, it came as a massive shock. We will be moving swiftly with this and appreciate everyone's support during this tough time.

    Funds raised will contribute towards the cost of a bespoke wig, from Bloomsbury of London. Something she can wear whilst she is undergoing treatment, to keep a smile on her face.

    Love and positivity to you all.


    P.S. Remember to check your boobs people!

    P.P.S All additional funds after purchasing the wig will go towards supporting Ellen whilst she is unable to work, with additional contributions made to the charities supporting her and other young people throughout this little bump in the road.

      Hi everyone! We thought we'd do a long and very overdue update and can only apologise for not doing this sooner! Since the last update, Ellen has had two cycles of chemotherapy, Chris has shaved his head with help from the lovely Adam at Verve & Virtue in Witney and Chris' band Desert Storm have all done the same in solidarity. Thanks to your donations, Ellen has successfully been able to afford her wig from Bloomsbury. A huge thank you again, truly from the bottom of our hearts, we couldn't have done it without you. C & E x

      151!!! I wish I could thank and hug each and every one of you individually. I feel completely and totally overwhelmed by all of the donations, love, support and messages we’ve received in the past few weeks. Tonight is ‘chemo eve’ for us and although we’re both nervous I know we’ve GOT THIS because we have so many amazing people behind us. Much love to you all, Ellen x

      Hi everyone, I wasn’t going to write a message on this page as I felt it’s Chris’ thing but he and I only thought it was right that I say a HUGE THANK YOU to you all. I cannot believe 151 of you have donated...
