AMMENDMENT: The head shave will only go ahead if I reach my total of £300 by Wednesday Noon. So have a rummage in your pockets and see if you can find some cash to throw my way and hit donate for a hugely worthy cause! Sadly, two people I care about very much have been sexually assaulted,something I wouldn't wish on anyone. On both occasions the local SV2 ~ Supporting Victims of Sexual Violence; helped them to work through the assault, to face and come to terms with what had happened to them and to decide on how they wished to proceed after informing them of the options available to them. This specialist counselling helped both these people to pick themselves up and more importantly learn who their true friends were and the people to surround themselves with. For them to retreat from large groups and focus on people they could trust and feel safe with. These specialist counsellors are incredible, the work they do is far~reaching and essential to the victims of this type of assault. Seeing the work they do second~hand has made me decide that it's time I did something to help raise funds to pay towards ongoing costs to maintain this service. So I decided to shave off my hair, I have a long fringe which I hide behind ~ so by shaving off my hair I am making myself feel exposed and vulnerable, just as victims feel.
