The danger when people start to believe their own publicity is that they often fall off their own ego.

Wow, that's a really amazing thing you're doing as a family. I wish I could come say hi, but its a little far for me, particularly without a car...

As soon as my income is sorted I'll send sponsorship for pod :) dont forget the before and after pics ;)

for Dan3008 as originally requested.

I removed the text of the original post when I saw the view numbers increasing but no supportive comments apart from Dan.
That also included the fact I had invited anybody who was within sensible driving distance to attend our Tea & Bacon Roll Morning on our allotment at which Poddington Pea was having her head shaved but unfortunately no one from this site showed any interest.

Evening Pa Snip, your daughter did a wonderful job and i think she is very brave.....and a decent amount raised too.
I am very sorry for my lack of support, though.

That's amazing! You must be very proud !

PM me the link to the just giving site and I'll happily make a donation.

My mum loves knitting hats and I'm sure would love to make one for your daughter - let me know if she would like one and I'll make a request. She's currently knitting 50 for the premature baby ward at her local hospital.

Thank you Pawty, I have sent you the link to Brave the Shave page by private message.

Thanks for the hat offer, kind thought but I think the little mites at hospital mean your mums efforts should not to be diverted.

Kindest regards

No problem. Fantastic charity to support - they do amazing work. Just donated and it looks like she's got a great following!

Come on everyone - if everyone who views this post donates just £1 I reckon we could help get her up to £2k in no time.
