Alopecia UK is a small charity working to improve the lives of those affected by alopecia. The charity has aims around Support, Awareness and Research. Having Alopecia myself, I know first hand the affect the condition can have on your sense of self, trust in your body and identity. This is a tricky journey, but hopefully one I can feel slightly more in control of by shaving the remaining hair off at the end of September.

My partner, Dave, has also volunteered to shave his mass of locks in solidarity and support. A gesture so kind I'm not sure I'll ever stop crying....

Alopecia UK relies on the support of fundraisers and donors to continue the fantastic work it does.

Thank you for supporting us with our fundraising efforts. We really appreciate your support and so does Alopecia UK!
