Steve's HeadShave in support of the Christie Hospital in gratitude for their ongoing treatment of my friend Phil Pollington.

£120 donated after the game today against Boston RUFC by my generous friends and Rugby Family at East Retford RUFC who raised £70 on the Club Raffle and donated a further £50 in memory of Peter (Blue) Hutchinson of Worksop RUFC who passed away recently. Thank you so much you all for your generosity and kindness, which is most humbling. Thank you.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

As you may know, my friend Phil Pollington is currently receiving Chemotherapy treatment at the Christie Hospital in Manchester. Phil is in great hands there as the Christie are leading experts in cancer care, research and education. As is often the case, Phil has lost all his hair due to the treatment and I wanted to show solidarity with Phil and to raise some funds for the Christie Charitable Fund. To that end, I will be having my head shaved to raise money for this wonderful cause.

The date for the event is 25 September 2018 and will be held at my employer, Kier, offices at Thorncliffe Hall near Sheffield. On the day, I will also be auctioning the clippers to the highest bidder to be the person who shaves my head. I will hopefully have a video made to send out to all contributors.

Please donate if you are able and if you are a tax payer your donation will also benefit from the Government Gift Aid scheme, increasing the value of your donation, Many thanks.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
