Welsh Pair With Fibromyalgia Shave Heads For Nevill Hall Hospital
Tuesday 26 May 2020
From Welsh newspaper the South Wales Argus:
Gwent pair with fibromyalgia shave heads for Nevill Hall Hospital
A PAIR of inspirational Gwent women have raised more than £1,000 for the NHS – £900 more than their initial target – by shaving their heads.
Catherine Norris from Abertillery and Barbara Williams from Cwm, who both suffer with fibromyalgia – a condition which causes pain all over the body – explained how they couldn’t do anything rigorous, but were committed to doing something for the NHS during the pandemic.
“I put on Facebook that I was going to brave the shave and Catherine said she’d join me,” Mrs Williams said. “My husband thought I was mad, but I wanted to do something to contribute and it dawned on me this was the best way.”
After her post was shared around social media, Mrs Williams said she was astonished to see the money rise so quickly.
