    Story

    The "Man Bun" is going...

    So I have decided after seven years of growing my infamous long locks that it’s time for them to go. Those that know me, know I won’t lose my locks without good reason and after seeing three friends recently battling against Breast Cancer and knowing so many other people who have been affected by Breast Cancer during most of my life it’s time to raise some money to help those people who help those affected by Breast Cancer.

    So my "Man Bun" has become a distinctive feature of me and my life. Having appeared on UKTV's series CopsUK Bodycam Squad whilst policing in Uttoxeter my "Man Bun" gained its own notoriety and status dividing opinion amongst those that saw the show and making me identifiable across the United Kingdom and afar. Having taken seven years of love, care, conditioning and combing and now that Boris has lifted the restrictions on Personal Care it is time for the "Man Bun" to go.

    So I have decided that on Saturday 22nd May 2021 (COVID Permitting) the "Man Bun" goes and for those curious the beard isn't going I can't risk looking 12 again.

    The Charities....

    I have contacted my three friends who have recently been affected by Breast Cancer and asked each of them to name a charity that they would like any monies raised donated to. So the three Charities chosen are below, if you click the blue name of the charity you can find out more about the Charity.

    Katharine House, Stafford - Provide Free Care to those affected by life-limited conditions, not restricted to Cancer but also catering for a whole range of conditions and illnesses. Their care is not exclusive to the patient but also focuses on supporting the family and friends. They are a charity and rely solely on acts of kindness and generosity to provide this valuable support.

    StrongMen - The aim of this Charity is to help men tackle the mental, emotional and physical health conditions brought about by bereavement. It is often an oversight of the secondary effect of Breast Cancer on the partner of the Patient. They have personal experience in these issues which helps them to support Men going through the toughest of times.

    Mummy's Star - This is the only Charity in the UK and Ireland dedicated to women and their families diagnosed with cancer during pregnancy or within 12 months of giving birth.. Their mission is simple - to provide cancer support to every family facing this traumatic situation.

    Due to naming three Charities I cannot list them individually so I am going to collect the money in one pot then whatever is raised will be split into three and shared equally between the Charities.

    Once my locks have been cut off I will be donating them to a wigmakers so that they can use them to make wigs to help those people going through chemotherapy and similar treatments

    Please dig deep people and donate what you can to help these three amazing Charities who do so much to help others.

      £4,935 which is 822% of my original target raised with online donations. Add to that the £293 of cash donations and that means I’ve cleared £5,000. I am lost for words with all the generous donations I have received from you kind hearted people who have helped get me to this point. I cannot wait to give this money over to the charities. Thank you all!

      Saw you on TV dealing with an elderly man with dementia. As I lost Dad to dementia recently and Mum has Alzheimer’s it really touched me. Well done on raising so much money for amazing causes.
