Suzanne suits her new shave
A CARE home manager shaved off her long locks to raise money for a Christmas ball for people who are both deaf and blind.
Suzanne Curle, 44, from Louth has a target of £1,000 for the ball which she has planned for the residents and their families through fundraising efforts.
As part of her fundraising, Suzanne publicly cut off her long pigtails and shaved her head on September 27 at an event at the Sense care home in Louth where she works and managed to raise £600 towards the Christmas feast.
"I thought it would be a lovely gesture to organise a Christmas ball to bring together the deafblind people we support and their families who live far away," said Suzanne.
"When the day came I was really anxious. But I wanted to stick to my decision as I was raising money for a wonderful cause – I know that for the deafblind people we work with celebrating Christmas with their families would be the most amazing Christmas gift.
"My colleagues and friends have been really supportive, everyone donated and baked cakes on the day and even helped me shave my hair down to grade two.
"I was dreading to look in the mirror afterwards, but it was a huge relief hearing from people that my new look actually suits me."
