Maison’s loss of hair is charity’s gain

Rob George 28th Apr, 2022

A TUTOR from Evesham College has braved the shave and raised more than £400 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Maison McDonnell, from Solihull, raised £405 by shaving off his hair for charity. His Level 1 and Level 2 plumbing students came up with the idea to raise funds for

Macmillan Cancer Support, which the students had already supported through a shoebox appeal at Christmas.

He said: “I have known a few people who have had cancer over the years and have received a lot of support from Macmillan Cancer Support. Taking part in ‘Brave the Shave’ was a way of giving back to the charity.

“I’m proud to have raised more than £400 for the charity and I am always open to finding more ways to raise money for a good cause.

“To be honest, I told a lot of people that I would be doing the ‘Brave the Shave’ and I don’t think many believed me, but once I posted on social media the reaction I’ve had has been brilliant.

“A lot of people donated and I couldn’t be happier with the achievement.”
