I'm shaving off my turquoise hair to raise money in memory of my dad


On my birthday (11 July) I will be chopping off my precious hair!! This is a big deal for anyone who has always had long hair, but everyone who knows me knows that my brightly coloured hair is a huge part of my identity - this is pretty significant for me!

We lost my dad, affectionately known as 'Big Mark' amongst my friends, in Feb 2020 only 5 months after he received his cancer diagnosis. I am so grateful that I was able to travel home, and that my family & I had those very special months together, & the chance to say goodbye. My dad really was really the best sort of person - kind, patient, caring, hilarious and adored by everyone in his life. I miss him every day, and 2 years on I still find myself reaching for my phone to tell him my news, and spontaneously bursting into tears of joy when I hear his favourite songs or when happy memories of him float into my mind.

For those donating from Aotearoa NZ, I’ve chosen to fundraise for the Child Cancer Foundation who provide practical & emotional support to children who have cancer and their whānau. I know my dad would have loved that money was being raised in his name to help kids who need it most. (If you're in Scotland, I’m fundraising for the Highland Hospice, who took such exceptional care of my dad in the final stages of his life - https://linktr.ee/auntybluey )

Thanks for your support! Rach X
