Haircuts at home

Overdue for a trim? Most of us are. Why not raise money by getting sponsored to let your partner, housemates or family members cut your hair? It could be a little off the sides or something more adventurous, just set up a Giving Page and share the link with everyone you know. Get a buzz cut while getting a buzz going on social media and raise a load of money for great causes. Check out our fundraising do’s and don’ts here.
