Harold Mason is a brave man. This Saturday morning May 1st, at 9am in Kirkby Stephen Market Square, he is entrusting members of Kirkby Stephen Mountain Rescue Team with his first haircut for a year. He is hoping to end up with a simple and elegant No.2 cut, but with our lack of experience in hairdressing – it’s not something often called for during rescues – who knows what will happen?
Harold has raised money for several causes in the past with his haircut adventures and this year he’s decided to take this risk to help the Mountain Rescue Team boost its funds in a period when it has been very difficult to fundraise.
Harold is also well known locally as an expert maker of carved walking sticks. He has kindly donated one of his beautiful sticks to support this challenge. The stick will find a new owner amongst all the people who donate during his hair-raising challenge. We’ll pick one lucky person at random from everyone who donates, any amount, either online or in person. To go into the draw when donating online please pick the choice to allow us to contact you by email, or fill in one of the slips we’ll have on Saturday morning.
We’ll keep the option to donate and enter this draw open until May 12th and then we’ll make the draw. Please click the link below to go to our online donation page:
