Locks shorn for charity?

 23rd Jun 2011

Dave Mounsey 250Dave Mounsey retired from his position as Head of Finance at the Wildlife Trust in 2009. He still does some work for us, some of it on a voluntary basis. When he became a university student for the second time in 2005, he also reverted to his former long-haired style, and has retained it since then. He now offers us the opportunity to help him shave the lot off to support his charities.

His target is to raise at least £250, for which it all comes off except a bit of stubble. As he points out, that’s only about £20 an inch, which sounds like a bargain, so give generously. A before photograph is shown here. An after photograph will be provided later.

He is raising money for two charities: Somerset Wildlife Trust, and Tree Aid.

Tree Aid is a Bristol-based charity which tackles poverty and environmental protection in the sub-Saharan drylands of Africa through forestry. They help villagers unlock the potential of trees to break the cycle of environmental decline and poverty, helping to create self-reliance for poor communities building not only their chances of survival but also their dignity and respect. Read more about their work here or watch a short film about their work here.
