Regency House Nurse shaves head raising £560 for cancer charity

A Nurse at Regency House, our care home in Ely, Cardiff, recently said goodbye to her long locks by taking part in ‘Brave the Shave’ to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Zoe Hughes has raised £560 for the cancer charity, which provides physical, financial and emotional support for people diagnosed with cancer and throughout their journey. She also donated her hair to the Little Princess Trust, a charity which provides real hair wigs, free of charge, to children and young people who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment and other conditions.

Following the selfless act, Zoe said: “It was very liberating and feels wonderful now it’s been done.

“I was very nervous on the day and I am so grateful for all the support and generosity of everyone around me which spurred me along and made it all worthwhile.

“I donated my hair to the little Princess Trust so I am pleased that it will also be put to some good use.

“Two wonderful charities have benefited from me braving the shave so that’s a double bonus. I would like to thank so many people including Charlotte Jones at Lemonade Hair Swansea and Carys Grey at Vanity Greys for their help.

Customer Relationship Manager at Regency House Care Home said: “I can’t even begin to put into words how proud everyone at Regency House and Hallmark Care Homes is of Zoe. She is truly inspirational. What an amazing act of kindness and bravery.”
