Half way house for council shaving star
9:00am Monday 23rd December 2013 in News
WITH Movember but a distant memory, one man has decided to celebrate the return of the razor by only shaving half of his hair off to raise money for a charity close to his heart.
Tim Smith, principal manager of Warrington Borough Council’s Employment, Learning and Skills team, has shaved off one half of his hair and beard as well as waxing off his chest hair.
The charity shave was organised in aid of mum of two Karan Waller, who was diagnosed with a grade two astrocytoma, a brain tumour, after collapsing at home in 2009.
The 36-year-old is being supported by the Astro Brain Tumour Fund, a charity focusing on funding research into low-grade brain tumours.
Tim said: “Karan is a true inspiration to us all at St Werburgh’s. The staff and I wanted to show our appreciation and gratitude to the Astro Brain Tumour Fund for the support that they provide to Karan and her family. I had half an idea to do something and this was it.”
