One brave young supporter has gone the extra mile for DENS by shaving her head on Valentine’s Day.
Laura, a 10-year-old student at Bishop Wood School in Tring, decided to raise money for DENS by shedding her long locks, so she could help people facing homelessness throughout Dacorum.
“I’ve been thinking about doing this for a while. I know about DENS through my school because we support the Harvest Appeal. I want to do something to help homeless people because everyone deserves a home. It’s wrong that people don’t have somewhere to stay and something to eat so that every day is a struggle. I want to stop that struggle,” said Laura.
Thanks to Laura’s epic fundraising efforts, she has already smashed her target of £1,000 and now hopes to double that following the big shave. As you will see in the video above, Laura is truly rocking the new look!
We would like to say a huge thank you to Laura for raising both awareness and vital funds for DENS with this inspiring act of kindness. Her support will ensure that we can continue to help rebuild the lives of vulnerable people in the community.
