    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.


    Hi all,

    I am turning 30 in September (if you didn't already know 😂) and I want to mark the occasion by doing something for others. So I am having a cm of hair chopped off for every year I've been alive!

    30cm for 30 years

    My hair will be donated to the Little Princess Trust who make wigs for children with cancer. But for me, that's not enough! It's quite a lot of hair that I will be departing with 😕 so I'd love to be sponsored to do it. I have two causes I would love to support, Compassion UK, a charity who release children from poverty (of which I am a rep for) and my school (where I work) as we really need to convert an area into a second quiet space for the children to use when necessary. The money I raise will be split between the two causes. Thanks in advance for your support and kindness.


    PS my hair cut will be happening in a whole school assembly where I work....I must be crazy 😜

      I just want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has sponsored me! I feel so blessed to have such amazing friends and family! And I just want to honour God in everything that I've done in my life, especially today, on my 30th birthday! All the praise belongs to Him! And today, I have honoured Him! My hair is ready to bless a little girl and I have raised a huge amount, (yet to be collected and totalled) towards Compassion UK and a new quiet room for my schools' key stage 2 area! Thanks a million everyone!

      So it's 1 week until I have my hair cut off! Feeling excited but also quite nervous! It's been long for such a long time and I haven't had it cut so short since I was starting high school when the hairdresser cut it all wonky. It was supposed to be just below my shoulders but one side ended up to my chin! How that happened I don't know but before the world of straighteners came in, it wasn't a good look! Let's just leave it at that 😂 So to all of you who said you'll sponsor me but haven't got round to it, now's the time. 😁 Thanks so much x
