Ian Mcauliffe, who works at Wessex Garages on Hadfield Road in Cardiff, had his hair shaved off yesterday (Wednesday, July 13, 2016) in aid of a hospice in the area.
Ian, who live in Bedwas in Caerphilly, shaved off his hair on his head to raise money for George Thomas Hospice Care.
The 55-year-old, who is a New Car Sales Executive, explained: “There are several people I know battling cancer right now, both here and in the USA. All are being open and honest about their fight and it is their courage that has been my inspiration.
“So rather than ask for a repost of a repost to be shared for an hour on a Facebook page I wanted to do more so I thought I would shave off the hair on my head. Cancer should no longer be a threat to anyone’s life, but it’s still here.
“I am asking for donations anyone would like to make to be given to George Thomas Hospice Care and the respective cancer research organisations here in the UK.
“This was the only positive thing I could think of doing to re-remind and show that everyone fighting cancer is living it 24/7 with courage, strength, dignity and grace. This is my small gesture of support to all these phenomenal people.”
George Thomas Hospice Care was established in 1984 and has helped more than 24,000 patients and their families in Cardiff. It is committed to personal dignity, quality of life and the highest possible standards of care and service.
The services George Thomas Hospice Care provides are free of charge. It offers a number of services at its Hospice Centre based in Whitchurch Hospital Grounds, however much of its work takes place in its patients’ homes.
