Ukraine appeal: Fife women smash fundraising target ten times over with head shave
Two Fife women who shaved their heads in a bid to raise £500 to help Ukranian refugees have smashed their target ten times over.
Elizabeth Adams and Alexa Stewart from Falkland have now raised £5800 for the British Red Cross’ DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal – and the total is still rising.
They took their seats in the window of Elizabeth’s Fayre Earth Shop in Falkland today, and were watched by a crowd of spectators as they had their heads shaved.
As the clippers were wielded a further £260 was added to their total.
Elizabeth said: “We all feel helpless in this situation. Fundraising enables us to show we care.
“We have had a lot of support - so many people were outside the shop watching while we had our heads shaved.”
The duo set an initial target of £500 only to see that smashed as money poured into their online fundraiser.
