Night­mare cut for Dreams

Wishaw Press - - CHARITY NIGHT -

A Wishaw lol­lipop lady put a stop to sham­poo af­ter shav­ing her head for a kids char­ity.

Lynda Kel­lie held a char­ity night at Wishaw Bowl­ing Club to raise money for the Les Hoey Dream­maker Foun­da­tion.

And as well as brav­ing the head shave, she made a hair-rais­ing £2000 for the char­ity.

Lynda, who cov­ers Wishaw Academy and St Ig­natius Pri­mary and is also a playground as­sis­tant at Cle­land Pri­mary, said: “It was an ab­so­lutely amaz­ing night. I’ve just about re­cov­ered from hav­ing all my hair shaved off!

“My sis­ter Irene also shaved her head on the night and there was lots of other en­ter­tain­ment. Ev­ery­one who came had an ab­so­lute blast.

“I also had a fan­tas­tic re­sult of rais­ing over my tar­get of £2000 and it is thanks to the lo­cal busi­nesses in Wishaw and all over La­nark­shire for do­nat­ing fan­tas­tic prizes for the raf­fles and tombola.

“Also a big thank you to ev­ery­one who at­tended, old and young, who bought raf­fle tick­ets and do­nated gifts and en­joyed the night.”

Lynda also thanked fi­ance Wul­lie and her son Ben for all their sup­port and help over the last three months to make the night such a suc­cess.

Chap­mans Butch­ers, New­mains DJ Gor­don Fos­ter and the Com­mer­cial Ho­tel also helped on the night.

Close shave Lynda Kel­lie, cen­tre, with friends and fam­ily on the night, and, be­low, be­fore the chop
