ITU Staff Nurse sponsored charity shave

Laura Jones, one of the staff nurses from the Kent & Canterbury ITU has been sponsored to shave her hair, and has not only donated the hair to The Little Princess Trust, but has raised over £1200 for The Rising Sun Domestic Violence & Abuse Service.

Little Princess Trust will receive her hair to make wigs for boys and girls throughout the UK that have suffered hair loss due to cancer treatment.

Rising Sun is a charity based in Canterbury and apart from being there for all victims of domestic abuse; they do some great work for young teens preventing them from being in abusive relationships, learning to recognise the signs, mentoring those who are already vulnerable and at risk through to counselling for those who are suffering.

Laura is delighted to have raised so much for a charity she feels so passionate about; “Throughout my career as a nurse, I have often come into contact with victims of domestic abuse and as a parent of teens I feel it is my job to help them develop healthy and happy relationships.”

Laura originally set herself a target of £750, but overtook this on the day of the chop, 25th June.
