Time’s Up and 12″ is coming off!

My Hair200I am very pleased to announce that my hair will soon be coming off! Read on to find out all the details…

Athena Network Leicester member Sarah Houldcroft from VA for Authors has almost reached her target of £1000 to have 12” of her hair cut off for three fabulous charities, Macmillan, National Autistic Society and our own Leicester based Soft Touch Arts. The hair will be sent off to make wigs for cancer sufferers.

She has been growing her hair for about 6 years with this in mind, so please support her by donating here http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/SarahHouldcroft

She will be having her hair cut off at the next Athena Network Leicester Cappuccino Connections at The Belmont Hotel in Leicester on Friday 10th June at 10am. Please BOOK HERE to come along and support Sarah and you could bid to be the one to actually cut her hair off!


If you have donated or you book as a visitor to come along to the hair cutting, you will be entered into the draw to win a week’s holiday in Sarah’s well-appointed mobile home in Cornwall. The draw will be made on 10th June too.

Athena LogoBernadette Sarginson, Athena Regional Director for Leicester and Nottingham, will be donating all the booking fees for June’s Cappuccino Connections event to Sarah’s charity campaign and any other money raised on the day will be given directly to Soft Touch Arts, the award winning Leicester charity that uses arts, media and music activities as a tool to engage with and change the lives of disadvantaged young people.

Bernadette said “Sarah is an amazing woman, raising funds and donating her hair to support 3 very worthy charities. It’s my pleasure to support her at our June Cappuccino Connections event and I hope we get lots of support and visitors on the day!” You can BOOK HERE

While Sarah’s hair is being restyled, Athena Nottingham member, Di Turner Author of ‘The Meaning of Life for a Modern Mum’ will be telling us about her journey to published Author and talking to us about her debut novel. You will also have the chance to buy signed copies on the day.
