Sue Johnson's Fundraising Efforts

Sue Johnson of the Society of Radiographers shares the touching reason behind her fundraising effort.

Dear all

May I introduce myself? You may have seen my door sign when passing Zetland Square on Dundas Street. I am a remote worker for the Society of Radiographers. I am a professional officer who supports the practice of diagnostic radiography at professional body level. I provide guidance and advice to individuals as well as liaising at local,regional and national level on matters as diverse as workforce development to a rewrite of installation standards for medical electrical equipment. I moved to Richmond with my husband just over a year ago, for as a remote worker, I had the freedom to choose my ideal location! Great transport links, fast broadband and the beautiful location where we have spent many holidays helped us make the decision.

I just wanted to share the next chapter of my story below. I would be grateful for financial support but actually just really wanted to explain why a bald headed woman is suddenly located at Zetland Square! Richmond is a small town and it may save me from keep repeating my story. I am not ill (as far as I know!) but will be sporting a bald head for the foreseeable future.

Unfortunately my sister, who lives in Sheffield, was diagnosed with breast cancer in October, and to show support and raise some money for charity I committed to shaving my head in solidarity with her chemo hair loss! I have already achieved my target (£250) so am now aiming for £1000. The hair goes on December 3rd!

You can help me raise money for this great cause by donating directly to my fundraising page.

JustGiving sends your donation straight to Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity and automatically reclaims Gift Aid if you are a UK taxpayer, so your donation is worth even more.

Thank you for your support and understanding of my new woolly hat look!
