Braving the shave at Windmill Hill Day Nursery

In the latest in a series of fundraising events, colleagues from Windmill Hill Day Nursery in Swindon proudly watched on as selfless Nursery Practitioner, Lisa Clarke, had her head shaved at the setting in order to raise vital funds for charity.

Having been personally affected by cancer through the losses of family members and close friends since the age of four years old, Lisa was inspired to face the clippers for Cancer Research UK at the Day Nursery on Windmill Hill Business Park, Whitehill Way, and has raised £987.00 as a result, with donations still incoming.

Windmill Hill Day Nursery Practitioner, Lisa Clarke explained;

“This is a cause which is incredibly close to my heart so I’m thrilled to be making this donation. I am so grateful for all the support I’ve received and am currently in the process of researching charities which I can donate my hair to also.”

The initiative is the most recent fundraising activity for Windmill Hill, who have also enjoyed dress up days, sponsored step challenges, virtual balloon races and more in their efforts to raise money for CRUK, who in December announced they had been forced to cut research funding by £45 million due to losses from the pandemic.

The nursery adopted Cancer Research UK in 2020 for a year-long fundraising drive, which has now been extended until the end of 2021.
