Why I am Shaving my Head for SOS Africa
23 Jun 2011
Most women cringe at the thought of becoming bald and this is why as opposed to jumping off a building, cliff or out of an aeroplane, I have decided to become unnecessarily bald and am rising to the challenge in aid of SOS Africa.
I am a mature student studying Theatre and Education at the University of Reading and was so pleased to hear about SOS Africa supporting children in Africa by sending them to mainstream schools. Being born and raised in South Africa I moved schools often and have seen the lack of accessibility that some people have to education. I believe that education should be free to those that want it: "Everyone should be entitled to free education!"
So far I have been really flattered by the support the local community has shown me and SOS Africa. The manager of ‘Up the Junction’ bar at 231 London Road, Reading, has provided the venue, and Ryan from ‘Electric Hair,’ Reading (www.electric-hair.com), is sharpening his razor ready for the occasion. The event is also being covered by BBC Radio Berkshire and The Reading Evening Post.
If you’d like to be present when I shave my head to raise funds for the children of SOS Africa or even cut a bit of my hair off yourself, come along on Friday the 19th August at 18:30.
