July 16, 2016: Tim Hewke and Jane Payne pictured above with hair on a night out. NOT FOR VERY MUCH LONGER
Locals, Jane Payne, of Hatherleigh Pottery fame, Ben Whiting, aka “Metal Ben” and new comer to Hatherleigh, Tim Hewke are braving the shave on 28th August at the Tally Ho!
These brave souls are having their heads shaved in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support at The Tally Ho! Hatherleigh at 7.30pm on Sunday 28th August followed by live music until late.
If you wish to sponsor any of them you can find sponsorship forms at Hatherleigh Pottery, The Tally Ho! or go to www.bravetheshave.org.uk and search for any of the names above and donate online.
As of June 2013, there were 3,942 Macmillan nurse posts across the UK, both in hospitals and in the community.
All Macmillan nurses are registered with at least five years' experience, including two or more years in cancer or palliative care. They have completed specialist courses in pain and symptom management, and psychological support.
Most of the nurses work in NHS hospitals or the community. A small number work in hospices and private hospitals, but do not charge for their services. As specialists they do not routinely undertake nursing care but are there to assess complex needs, give advice to other healthcare professionals and support people with cancer to understand their treatment options.
So don’t forget not only to sponsor any of these people but also to go along and give them your support on the night.
