My friend Helen Blanshard opened up her shop (Simply First, Derby Road, Stapleford) to hold an event outside on Saturday 17th. A few different charities were represented, but we were there representing Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research. It was such a beautiful day; we had a guess-the-number-of-jelly-beans competition, won by a brother & sister team (little Archie & Florence), whose faces lit up when we delivered the prizes to their door later in the day. The main event was Spiderman revealing his identity as my friend Michael Walsh, in order to have his head shaved for charity... But, in a surprise for all of us, a second young man - Callum Heard - stepped forward to have HIS head shaved as well, and then a third young man - Jack Oxtoby - allowed us to wax his legs, all to raise as much as we could! You can see the shaving and waxing in this video about the event: It was such a wonderful day. In the end, including money just popped into the collection tins, we raised £111.14, pretty good going for our first ever activity!
