Care workers brave the shave

Care workers brave the shave

TWO daring local care workers are set to brave the shave next month to raise money for charity.

Tina Dibb and Mo Colbeck, who work at Ashworth Grange care home in Dewsbury, will have their locks chopped at the home’s annual summer fair on Saturday, August 10.

The plucky pair will be raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support and Dewsbury mental health charity Take Ten.

Tina, 49, from Batley, said: “I had been thinking about doing some fundraising for Macmillan for a while and then a close friend was diagnosed with cancer.

“She wrote a very moving and heartfelt post on social media which made me realise I had to get on and do something quickly. 

“Mo and I decided that the best way to raise the most money would be to do something a little crazy and so our head-shaving idea was born.”

Mo, 48, added: “My family and friends think I must be mad to shave all my hair off but I want to do whatever I can to raise funds for Take Ten. 

“Looking after our minds, as well as our bodies, has never been more important and organisations like this are doing amazing work in our region but they need every penny they can get.”

The summer fair starts at 2pm at the home on Ashworth Green and there’ll be food and drink stalls, a tombola, prosecco bar and bouncy castle. Tina and Mo are due to have their heads shaved at around 4pm.
