Self-confessed chocaholic Sharon Guinnane has given up her favourite guilty pleasure as she prepares to have her head shaved – and she’s doing it all to raise money for Queenscourt.
On May 15 Sharon will undergo a drastic transformation when she loses her shoulder-length locks for charity and in addition, has decided to abstain from chocolate in the run-up to the big event in a bid to gain a clearer complexion.
“Giving up chocolate is the hardest part of this as I’m seriously addicted to it,” said Sharon, area manager at First Port Retirement Property Services. “I’m actually quite looking forward to the head shave, it’ll be like a fresh start and there are always hats, head scarves and wigs in the worst case.”
Sharon is posting regular video updates on her Facebook page and will also be filming the actual event when Kirsten Mackie, her son Thomas Paddon’s girlfriend, will shave her head.
In these uncertain times, Sharon wanted to do something to raise money for a charity and immediately chose Queenscourt. “If I’m going to raise money, I would rather it be for a local charity and Queenscourt provides essential services for the community,” she said.
Sharon has already raised over £300 towards her £750 target. If you would like to donate, you can at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/sharon-guinnane
