I am a local GP planning to have my head shaved to raise money for my local hospice, St. Wilfrid’s Hospice, Chichester.
Having worked as a local GP for many years, I so appreciate all the wonderful support I and my patients have received from St. Wilfrid's Hospice.
All the people I have known who have suffered from cancer have been such an inspiration to me- they are very special people!
People with cancer don't have a choice in losing their hair. I DO have a choice, so it seems fitting to shave my hair as a small tribute to thank them all for the privilege of caring for them.
It costs St Wilfrid’s almost £6million a year to provide care, and only 14% of this is funded by the NHS.
Any donation that you are generous enough to give will be very gratefully received.
