Hairless For Heroes

March 31, 2020

or (as it's April Fool's Day) Follicle-Free Fools

We are inviting people to get 'Hairless for Heroes' on 1st April and help raise vital and urgently needed funds for The Veterans Charity whilst being part of a great fun event from the comfort and safety of your own home!

People are already pledging to become 'a follicle-free fool' (it is April Fool's Day after all!) and raise funds for our rapid reaction support for Veterans in hardship.

Will you join them?
