Heidi Evans from Stratton St Margaret will be ‘braving the shave’ to raise money for Pancreatic Cancer Action.
A fundraising event will take place at the Rat Trap, Highworth Road, Stratton St Margaret between 2pm and 5pm. There will be cakes made by family friends, as well as a raffle. However, the main event, where Heidi will be losing her locks, will be at 4pm.
Heidi said “My dad has recently been diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and since being told the news my life has been turned upside down, as I come to terms with this.
“I wanted to do something positive to support the charity which is offering my dad and family valuable support at this time and to raise money and awareness of this dreadful disease.”
Pancreatic Cancer is the UK’s fifth biggest cancer killer and the 5 year survival rate is just 4%. Pancreatic Cancer Action is committed to working towards earlier diagnosis of the disease so that surgery, currently the only cure, is made available to the sufferer. Ultimately this will lead to improving survival rates.
Ali Stunt, Founder of Pancreatic Cancer Action, said: “We are delighted that Heidi is giving her time to support Pancreatic Cancer Action.
”As a charity, we rely on the generosity of individuals like Heidi to help us continue our vital work. Please back Heidi in their fundraising efforts so that we can continue research into early diagnosis and raise awareness of pancreatic cancer.”
