“It’s going to be a very strange experience and I’m a bit nervous, but also looking forward to raising as much as possible” – Shop Manager Liz is braving the shave for EACH

Hair goes nothing!

A plucky charity shop manager is braving the shave for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH). Liz Knights runs the EACH shop in Market Place, Dereham, and her ‘hair-devil’ fundraiser is taking place in-store on Tuesday, 6th June.

Liz said: “I know all too well what a brilliant charity EACH is. It does so much incredible work supporting children and families in their hour of need and this is my way of generating extra funds.

“It’s going to be a very strange experience and I’m a bit nervous, but also looking forward to raising as much as possible. I’ve set up a fundraising page and also have a form in the shop, so hopefully our loyal customers will get behind me and show their support.

“I’d be so grateful to anyone kind enough to sponsor me. Anything and everything is appreciated, no matter how big or small.”

The shaving is being done by EACH volunteers Holly Hunt and Warren Knights – Liz’s son. To sponsor her, head here.

EACH relies on voluntary donations for the majority of its income and, this year alone, needs to raise £7.8 million from its Retail operation, which includes stores across Norfolk and a busy Retail Distribution Centre, in Thetford.
