Huge thanks to all those hosting Funky Hair Fundays

Imaginative hair styles raise vital funds to support our work

We have been blown away by the enthusiasm for our Funky Hair Fundays!

People of all ages have come up with fantastically creative ways to style their hair (and heads!) to support our work for children and young people.

One of the reasons we created Funky Hair Fundays was to ensure that people who were unable to donate their hair could still support us.

And so we were absolutely thrilled to see the residents at Mountfitchet House Care Home join in the fun.

The staff at Mountfitchet House Care Home put on a great party to help us.

As well as styling their hair, staff and residents at the home in Essex also held a cake sale to raise £440 for our cause.

Our friends at Banbury Postiche also combined baking with crazy hairstyles as part of their fun day.

There was plenty of colour on show when Banbury Postiche held its Funky Hair Funday.

The wig specialists raised more than £200 on a day with plenty of colour at their Oxfordshire HQ.

Other supporters had the great idea of hosting a Funky Hair Funday on the day when they had their big cut for LPT.

At Dawleys in Ross-on-Wye, Key Account Manager Leigh-Ann Cowles raised £620 when she had her hair cut surrounded by colleagues with colourful locks.

The amazing Holly was another to combine her hair cut with a Funky Hair Funday.

Holly donated her hair on her Funky Hair Funday.

So, as well as donating a mighty 18 inches of hair to us, Holly also raised £1,090!

We know many schools have held their own Funky Hair Fundays to teach children about the work of a charity in a fun and engaging way.

Sutton Primary Academy, near Hereford, was one of those to take part.

There were some great creations at Sutton Primary.

Children really got in the spirit and raised £289 for us.

Meanwhile, staff joined pupils in styling their locks at Castle Hill St Philip’s Primary School when more than £770 was raised for us after the school near Wigan made us their chosen charity for their Lenten Appeal.

And there were some fantastic designs on show at the Michael John Training School when the future hairdressers showed off their skills to raise more than £100 for LPT!

We are very grateful to everyone at the Michael John Training School for their support.

We are so grateful to all those who have held a Funky Hair Funday for us.

Funds raised will ensure we can continue to our free, real hair wigs to children and young people and fund childhood cancer research.
