Bald choice raises cash for charity

Have your say

A Sheffield woman has gone under the razor to raise nearly a thousand pounds for an Alzheimer’s charity.

Lynn Cox made the ‘bald’ decision to ditch her hair at a fun day, organised by her company Lloyds TSB, to raise cash for its nominated charity of the year - The Alzheimer’s Society

“I was really apprehensive before I had it done, I was really worried that my partner Paul wouldn’t fancy me anymore!” confessed the brave 53-year-old teller.

“It’s such a fantastic cause though, I knew the money was more important than my hair.

“Alzheimer’s devastates familes, not only those who suffer with the disease, but everybody around them and I’m proud to support the charity however I can.

“I’d do it again in a heartbeat.”

The city centre branch also held a raffle - with match tickets donated by Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield United - and sold buns and cakes.

Manager Kate Womersley said the branch was thrilled to have raised £1,300 in just one day.

“We’re so pleased with how the day turned out, £1,300 is a staggering amount for our charity of the year,” she said.

“Lynn was incredibly brave on the day and all the staff at Lloyds TSB wish to thank her for her contribution. Strangely, being bald really does suit her!

“Finally we want to thank our customers for supporting us as always and making it a really enjoyable day for us all.”
