Last week, The Prince of Wales, Sheffield raised more than £1000 for the Weston Park Cancer Centre and Research Hospital through a packed day of fundraising activities, including a ‘Brave to Shave’. Donations continue to come in for the cause, and can be made at the pub, in person, and online through their GoFundMe site.
One of the people who were brave enough to shave their heads and beards on that day was the Operator of the pub, Adam Crookes, he commented: “I am very proud that I was one of the people who shaved their head and beard for this cause. I also had my eyebrows waxed by guests to raise more money for the charity. I am humbled by what we managed to do as a community for Weston Park Cancer Centre. In times like this, we have shown once more how important a local community is and how if we work together, we can do anything.”
Besides the ‘Brave to Shave’ initiative, the pub organised other activities as well, including raffles and competitions. Customers were able to take part in the ‘pull your own pint’ competition. There were also some amazing prizes in the raffle, including breakfast for two in Sara’s Kitchen, a £20 voucher for Batty’s Butchers and two tickets for Sheffield United’s at home matches.
Adam continued: “This is a cause so very close to our hearts and I want to do every in my power to support the incredible work of the Weston Park Cancer Centre.”
