Fundraising for Macmillan Cancer Support

West London College’s inclusive learning staff at Hammersmith & Fulham College have been fundraising today, 24 June, for Macmillan Cancer Support. As part of the fundraising activities, teacher Charlie Chrysafis organised a bake sale and beverages with a difference, and senior learning assistant, Guillermo Sanchez-Lluch, known to all as G, took on a new look as he took part in ‘Brave the Shave’.

Charlie’s class of inclusive learners and learning support assistants made cakes and biscuits and healthy fruit drinks to sell. However, the centrepiece attraction of the day was the buzz-cut removal of G’s beautiful curly hair.

The event raised a whopping £280 plus a top-up contribution of £280 by Boots Pharmacy in Acton, making the total amount collected £560.

Event organiser Charlie said: “Donating in memory is a wonderful way to remember someone, while also making a difference to people with cancer. I am raising money in memory of my dear father-in-law, Tony Chrysafis who sadly passed last year.” 

Senior Learning Support Assistant G said: “Cancer affects an average of one out of two people. This means that cancer will undoubtedly affect every single one of us in one way or another. Unfortunately, medical and emotional support is not always available to those who need it most. It is for this reason that I decided to let staff shave my head to raise money for Macmillan.”
