Hair Today...

AMENDMENT: Visit her blog here!

Tina is definitely a horse of a different colour.

In order to raise money for cancer charity Brainstrust, she's agreed to shave her head for charity - but only if they can raise £5,000 to support Brainstrust's important work helping develop treatment for critically sited brain tumours.

Brain tumours are responsible for one in a hundred deaths in the UK, but the facilities and expertise needed to deal with the most dangerously sited tumours hardly exists in the UK. To raise awareness of this issue, Tina's willing to do the unthinkable and shave off all her hair!

In actual fact, Tina's already donated her lovely dark hair to charity before. It used to go all the way down to her hips, but she cut it off and donated the hair to American charity Locks of Love, who make wigs for kids who have lost their hair through chemo or radiotherepy.

Now she's doing again. Please help her out! You can donate money (as much or as little as you want) at
