Weʼre raising £499 to fund items in the new build at Ryedale School.

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.

Story

This year I turn 40, which is a sobering thought, and I always had in the back of my mind that at some point I would need to embrace being old and have a hair cut. This got me thinking that it could be an opportunity to raise some funds for the school in the same way some staff are raising funds with an ultra-marathon.

Having been at Ryedale about 15 years I am sure the one thing that current students and past students (and perhaps staff) recall about me is my hair. My hair has been long for the last 2 decades. Why has it been long? Perhaps at one stage it was 'cool', maybe to pay hommage to some gods of rock or perhaps, more likely, to keep my wife happy.

Well soon it will be no more! My plan is to have different incentives for different totals. Initially I would like to raise £200 but I'm willing to try and raise more and make an idiot out of myself in the process. Please if you have some creative ideas please S-HAIR them with me and i'll add them to the list.

On reaching:

*£100 - guaranteed hair cut short.

*£200 - will cut my hair in the school Christmas assembly (TBC).

*£300 - will dress in school uniform on the day of the assembly.

*£400 - Need ideas, give me time to MULLET over.

*£500 - SHAVING these ideas for later.

*£600 - CUT it out with the lame Dad jokes already.

*£900 - will put by hair in pigtails or a plait on the day of the assembly.

*£1000 - will bleach and dye pink in the week leading up to the assembly.

If any ex-student particularly wants to get involved or is a qualified hairdresser again please free to contact me and get involved.

Feel free to have a good chuckle at my expense but please also be generous with your donations. Help keep Ryedale School a successful and well resourced establishment.

    Thank you everyone who has donated so far. We have hit the £300 target but I am still without additional ideas for what to do for these extra £100 increments. The suggestion of dying my hair pink the week before was a good one but I'm not sure I can justify the expense to do it properly just for it to be shaved off a week afterwards. If anyone else has ideas please post them! I'll dig out a photo in the next few days to celebrate the new milestone :)

    To celebrate the £200 milestone I dug out a photo from the last time I cut my hair short. This is just after leaving university - circa 2001. Those eagle eye people might recognise the guitar. Thank you for the donations so far. But does anyone have any creative ideas for the next milestone?
