Rugby friends brave shave to help people with cancer
A Rugby woman with terminal cancer has braved the shave with four of her friends to help other people with the disease.
She was spontaneously joined on Saturday by Arden’s Angels members Caroline Turner, Pat Reynolds, Nickie Brightwell and Lee Skinner Bosley for the stunt.
Between them, their efforts have raised nearly £3,000 towards their £100,000 target for cancer services both at University Hospital Coventry and the Hospital of St Cross, Rugby.
They have raised well over £50,000 so far.
Tracie would like to thank everybody who has supported the appeal.
She said: “I was nervous before having my hair shaved off and it is a bit cold.
“We are now focusing all our raised funds on the new Rugby Cancer Unit at St Cross.
“I’d like to say a big thank you to Goodie Two Shoes in Rugby and Nicole Moyse photography.”
UHCW Charity has committed £100,000 to the new cancer centre which will mean Rugby patients can get all cancer treatment (except inpatient stays and radiotherapy) close to home. Visit uk.virginmoneygiving.com/NickieBrightwell
