November Newsletter 2013

Friday, November, 22, 2013

The Bald and Beautiful team were blown away when out of the blue came a letter in the mail from a lady that we have never met. After seeing Bald & Beautiful Day on NBN TV, Anne Hutton decided to use her creativity to come up with an incredible fundraiser idea. With the aim of raising $500, Anne came up with the concept of holding an "Excessories Day” at her workplace, Ausgrid. Her colleague, Ben Stevens offered graphic design skills to create a flyer and staff were invited to bring in unwanted scarves, belts, handbags and jewellery. Then an email went out to invite staff members to come along and buy a bargain. And all with the blessing of the boss! Anne started to receive the most amazing donations, and shared “I was blown away by the support by my co-workers, unfortunately too many have been touched by cancer”. The nominated day grew into multiple days due to the amount of goods to sell and the interest in buying the items.

Imagine everyone's surprise when we were presented with a cheque for $1154, which was made up of those who donated items to sell, proceeds from the sale and some cash donations. The leftover items were donated to a women’s refuge. What an amazing effort!!

"Excessories Day" at Ausgrid

Anne, together with Ben, her workmates and friends, has gone above and beyond to help others. It’s thoughtfulness like this and involvement of our own community that enables Bald & Beautiful to continue to provide a day of pampering and support for adults with cancer within our community.

The next Bald and Beautiful Day is on Wednesday, 7th May 2014.

Don’t forget to mark it in your diary.
