Story

Hello folks, just a thank you to all those who supported my head shave and a not so subtle prompt to those who have yet to sponsor me there is still time.

Check out the new ‘do’

This oil spill is fast becoming one of the most devastating environmental disasters of our time. Hair will typically soak up around four to six times its weight in oil. The hair from my head shave and from the five hairdressers who joined in this appeal is being sent out to the gulf.

I am making a fresh appeal to hairdressers across Cardiff to get them involved and sign up with Matter of Trust to help vulnerable wildlife and coastlines becoming further victims to this disaster.

Again many thanks for the words of encouragement and support – it is gratefully appreciated

All my love

Hair Today Gone Tomorrow hair appeal on Thursday 20th May, I am getting my head shaved to raise the profile of Matter of Trust and raise money in aid of WWF.

All hair from the salon and my head shave will be used to help fight the oil slick near the Gulf of Mexico.  The hair collected at Johnsons hairdressers and barbers, Cathays, Cardiff will be sent to Matter of Trust a charity which links up recycled goods with causes that need them. 

The Trust is coordinating the collection of hair, fur and tights which are needed to make booms and mats to mop up the oily mess spewing out of the sunken Deepwater Horizon oil platform which is lying on the seabed of the Gulf of Mexico. Hair and fur will typically soak up around four to six times their weight in oil.

This oil spill is a shocking example of how a corporation is damaging the earth and our natural environment. Stop Climate Chaos, there is no Planet B. Not only will the hair be put to good any donations will help the WWF with their work to protect endangered wildlife and environments.

I am encouraging students and residents to appeal to their hair salon to participate in sending hair to Matter of Trust and also shave their heads have their hair cut to help. I have a template letter if you want to help and petition your hairdressers. Johnsons hairdressers will be offering the opportunity for anyone interested in actively joining the campaign by having their head shaved in support on Thursday the 27th May. I will also be writing to hair salons across Cardiff with a hair appeal.
