Over £1700 Raised for Special Effect So Far!

I'm very pleased that so far my charity hair and beard shave on November 11th has raised £1742 for Special Effect - a wonderful charity who do excellent work with disabled people by improving their lives using technology.

If you haven't donated yet, then there's still time to do so - any support, no matter how small can help better someone's life:

The removal of my Samson like powers will take place at The Dun Cow in Christchurch (near Wisbech) on November 11th at 8:00 pm. All money raised in the venue will go to the East Anglia Air Ambulance. So if you're in the area, why not come and support me in person?

Raising Money for Special Effect - Sponsored Head and Beard Shave on Nov 11th


Hi all!

I will be participating in a Head and Beard shave (Assuming we raise enough money!) for the wonderful people at Special Effect on Saturday 11th November, in the Dun Cow in Christchurch at 8pm. If we raise £750 then all my hair will be shaved off, and if we manage over £1500, then the beard goes too!

I'm honoured to be an ambassador for Special Effect who use technology and video games to improve the quality of life for disabled people around the country. Please give generously on my JustGiving page here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/michael-brookes-headshave

All donations - no matter how small will help change someone's life.

If you're in the area then please come along and witness how cold my head and face becomes in person :-) At the venue we'll also collect for East Anglia Air Ambulance, who provide a valued service bring those injured in far flung places to hospital. I have to personally thank them for rescuing my sister after an accident on a  horse. So again, please come along and give what you can there as well.

Thank you in advance for any support you can provide, and please share this post as widely as you can.
