Alison Head Shave - before and after

Latest news and updates

Alison's Head Shave Raises  £2631

A huge thank you to Alison Slade who had her beautiful long hair shaved off to raise funds for the Olive Tree at Rock Paper Scissors in Ifield Green, Crawley.  Alison was supported by the Olive Tree when her husband Graham was being treated for cancer and she set herself the ambitious target of raising £1500 to be able to "give something back" to the Olive Tree.  However,  Alison's inspiring story captured the imagination of many people and she has already raised an incredible £2631!  Alison's story also caught the attention of BBC Sussex Radio and Crawley News 24.  Before and after photos are above - quite a transformation!  Luckily Alison was able to find a suitable wig from the Olive Tree's stock of wigs to use until her hair grows back again.
