Julie Kellow, of Courtenay, will face the clippers on Saturday, February 27 to raise money for Alzheimer’s Society.
A Honiton mum-of-two is preparing to have her long locks shaved off this month to raise funds for charity Alzheimer’s Society and Dementia UK.
Julie Kellow, of Courtenay, will face the clippers on Saturday, February 27, at Honiton Working Men’s Club.
Julie, 43, said: “I am doing this for two reasons.
“My father, Allan Bright, proprietor of Allan Bright Sawmills, has got Alzheimer’s and I lost my mum-in-law with dementia.
“My family have witnessed the devastating effect that dementia and Alzheimer’s can have on a family life.
“Progression of this condition can be slow or speedy and with Dad, it has been very sudden.
“He has always been a hardworking businessman and strived to balance family and working life.”
Julie will get her hair shaved off by her friend Debbie Wright.
She added: “I’m not sure who is more nervous out of the two of us.
“I am nervous and excited about the whole thing.”
