I had my head shaved to support sick neighbour
A MALVERN Link man and his colleagues have raised more than £4,000 for charity by having their heads shaved.
Ian Londesbrough, of Crispin Drive, undertook the challenge because his fatherin- law, Clive Cam, former headteacher of Great Malvern Primary School, is fighting the disease.
Mr Londesbrough recruited two colleagues, David Knapp and Don Kendall, from his workplace, Cheltenham- based software company Avelo, to join him.
The event took place on Mr Londesbrough’s 47th birthday, and his original target was £2,347, 23 for the date, September 23, and 47 for his age.
But the fund-raising went better than he expected, and the total raised has now exceeded £4,000. The money will be donated to four causes: the James Hopkins Trust, Myton Hospice, St Richard’s Hospice and the Anthony Nolan Trust. Mr Londesbrough said: “Clive, who I live next door to and am very close to, is undergoing chemo for cancer and will lose his hair.
“This is my way of getting something positive out of a challenging situation for the family and when he loses his hair due to the chemo I will be showing solidarity.
“I’m absolutely knocked out by the support we’ve received.”
