Eleanor Rees Cutting my long hair off

Back in March 2020 Eleanor opened a Virgin Money Giving page and wrote the following:

Hi Everyone,

My name is Eleanor and I would like to ask for the help and support of our local community to raise £1000 for Ty Bryngwyn hospice in Llanelli.

At the end of July [2020] I am going to cut most of my hair off which has taken me around 5 years to grow.

A few years ago I visited an elderly gentleman at Ty Bryngwyn, and I thought how amazing the staff and the surroundings are for these patients and families.

Please take this opportunity to donate to this charity.

Thank you very much.

Eleanor completed her brave and selfless challenge on Sunday 2 August. At that stage £1,037.50 had been raised exceeding the £1,000 target with more to come in from Gift Aid on the offline donations.

Very well done and thank you Eleanor for your support which means so much to our Appeal and thanks also to all those who contributed.
