Cai's Big Chop

I'm chopping my hair and need your help!

I started growing my hair in 2018 with the aim of cutting it to help others. It has now reached the length needed so that it can be donated to be made into a wig for someone who has lost their hair due to a medical condition.

I'll be chopping off  35.5cm (or more if it's longer by then) on the 7th of April.

To help me raise more funds for the fantastic charity - Variety (who have helped me in the past), my wonderful Aide, Jacqui has committed to chopping of her luscious locks too. 

My Dad, aka Mr Lidgett, is not quite as generous and has only agreed to shave his head if we reach my goal of $1000. Although, he has said if we double that, he will also shave the beard (his face has not be bald since 2004).

Wigs cost families up to $6,000, lasting 1-2 years, meaning families can spend tens of thousands of dollars on the purchase of wigs throughout a child’s youth. By making a donation to Variety - the Children's Charity, you can help provide a wig or other vital equipment to a child in need. Thank you for helping kids in need.
