Hair-raz­ing for hospice

Wicklow People - - NEWS -

IT WAS ‘Shave or Dye’ night in Ja­cob’s Well on Thurs­day night as some hardy souls de­cided to ei­ther have their bar­net com­pletely shaved off or dyed a stun­ning shade of colour.

The event tak­ing place in Rath­drum was a fundraiser for the Wick­low Hospice Foun­da­tion.

Dy­lan Tarmey man­aged to per­suaded a large group of his friends that they were badly in need of a dras­tic hair­cut or some rather strik­ing high­lights.

Bran­don Doyle got things un­der­way as he had his head shaved. The dye was soon fly­ing thick and fast as the other vol­un­teers weren’t given the op­por­tu­nity to change their minds.

Adam O’Con­nor had his beard shaved, while Róisín Daly had her head shaved es­pe­cially for the oc­ca­sion.

Sharon Han­lon and Laura Yorke were given the re­spon­si­bil­ity of all the shav­ing and dye­ing and seemed to revel in their roles.

By the end of the night the whole event had raised €1,144.58 for the Wick­low Hospice, with still more money due to come in.

Al­bert Web­ster pro­vided the mu­sic on the night, while Ja­cob’s Well also pro­vided some fin­ger food.
