A retail supervisor at Specsavers in Macclesfield is braving the shave in support of Macmillan Cancer Support, raising money for people living with cancer.

Aiming to reach £500 target

Shaving your head is a scary thought to most people, but Craig Wollaston is set to shave all of his off, including his beard, on 30 November. He is now calling on the community to help him hit his fundraising target of £500.

Craig, who was worked at the Macclesfield Specsavers store for more than 10 years, is collecting donations for the charity through pots in the store and through donations via the Brave The Shave website.

Macmillan Cancer Support offers a range of services that aim to reach and improve the lives of everyone living with cancer, as well as inspiring others to do the same. 

Donation to The Little Princess Trust

As well as the money raised being sent straight to Macmillan Cancer Support, Craig’s hair will also be donated to The Little Princess Trust.

The Little Princess Trust provides real-hair wigs to boys and girls across the UK and Ireland that have lost their own hair through cancer treatment and other illnesses.

Craig said: ‘Cancer is something that is close to everyone’s heart in one way or another and Macmillan is an incredible charity to support.

'I’m pleased there’s a way I can do my bit to help and I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who’s already donated at the Specsavers store or through the website.

‘If you can afford to spare any money to sponsor me before the 30 November and help raise as much money as possible, I know myself and the Macmillan team, will be incredibly grateful.’
