Hair-raising! Wandsworth dad triples Brave the Shave fundraising target for Macmillan

A charitable Wandsworth dad raised more than £1,500 for Macmillian by shaving off his hair and eyebrows last night.

Dave Hutchens collected a hair-raising £1,528 by taking part in Macmillan Cancer Support’s Brave the Shave in front of his family and friends at Heathfield Bowls Club on Wednesday, August 31.

The Wandsworth resident smashed his £500 target by letting people buy raffle tickets for the chance to shave a quarter of hair off each.

The 54-year-old was really impressed with the reception his event received.

“It was fantastic, I am really, really chuffed,” Dave said.

“We had such a good turn out, everyone supported me. It was a really good night.

“I am absolutely thrilled to bits.”

“I have lost a few family members to cancer.”
