Jennifer’s close shave for World Cancer Day

DOVESTONE SAILING Club member Jennifer Massey raised more than £1,600 for Cancer Research with a sponsored head shave.

Jennifer was supporting World Cancer Day and the total was £600 more than her target. She thanked the 90 “fantastic people” who donated.

Cancer Research and similar charities are very close to her heart. In 2016, Jennifer’s mum was diagnosed with cancer and spent the latter half of the year in hospital and then at home in bed.

She is doing amazingly well, but seeing somebody Jennifer loves suffer made a “little light bulb go off in my head”.

She wanted to do something to raise a substantial amount of money.

So, to give her boyfriend and sibling something to laugh about for the next six months while raising money for an amazing cause she decided to shave her hair for charity.
