Story

Hi there, thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

My name’s Duncan Weir and I play professional rugby for the Worcester Warriors. I’ve always had a strong head of hair and friends have always pushed for me to grow it to see how it turns out. During Lockdown it had grown a decent amount and I came up with an idea to grow it for charity until 2021. COVID 19 has brought a lot of challenges into many people’s life’s so this is really a bit of fun to attempt to raise money for a great cause at my expense.

Personally I have landmark moments going on during this time with my daughters 1st birthday and my wife is expecting to give birth to another in mid October. It will be funny looking back at photos during this time explaining why Daddy’s hair is slightly crazy in years to come.

Here’s some information on Acorns and becoming a father myself I know what special work they do.

Acorns Children’s Hospice provides babies, children and young people aged 0-18 years who have life limiting or life threatening conditions and associated complex needs with a network of specialist palliative nursing care and support. In the last year Acorns Children's Hospice has supported over 870 children and more than 1,141 families, including those who are bereaved. They provide short break, emergency and end-of-life care from the hospices with a dedicated community team to support the family 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
