Hair today and it’s gone tomorrow
A Cambuslang hair salon recently had a couple of haircuts with a difference - as the cuts were raising cash for a good cause.
Fraser Wallace and Craig McCarten, both 24, pledged to have both their locks shaved off and their hairy legs waxed in a bid to drum up cash.
The duo took part in the challenge at Vanity Salon on Cambuslang Main Street.
The duo raised a staggering £1,010 for the Craig Wallace Memorial fund as a result.
Three years ago Fraser’s brother Craig committed suicide at only 19-years-old, after failing on two previous occasions.
The Craig Wallace Memorial Fund then was set up after the teenager’s death to try to raise awareness and money, and to help others.
Fraser, a team leader for TK MAXX said:“I quite fancied the idea of shaving my head and it came into my mind I could do it for charity and roped Craig into it.
“We have done a lot of work as a family for the Craig Wallace Memorial Fund and I felt I wanted to do something on my own.
“We said if we got £200 we’d definitely have our legs waxed and if we reached £800 we’d get our heads shaved too.”
Since the fund was set up, more than £60,000 has been raised.
The money is ringfenced by the Scottish Association of Mental Health (SAMH) for their suicide prevention campaign.
