Caring Vicki Loizides is this week’s We Can Do It T-shirt winner because she is going the extra mile for her friend.
Vicki, 29 from Drayton, Portsmouth, is shaving her hair off to raise money for Cancer Research because one of her closest friends, Camella Robertson, was diagnosed with breast cancer.
Due to her treatment, she is going to lose her hair and Vicki decided to cut hers off so Camella wouldn’t be alone.
‘I was going to do it anyway and then I thought ‘‘why not do it for charity?’’’ Vicki says.
‘I was getting loads of support and so I set myself a target of £500 which I have already passed.
‘Now I’m aiming for £1,000.’
The haircut is due to take place on Good Friday, April 6, at The Festing pub, in Festing Road, Southsea.
Everyone will be able to see Vicki lose her hair and she admits she is nervous about it.
She says: ‘I am a little bit scared but then I think that, in the scheme of things, it’s nothing compared to what people who are having treatment for cancer are going through.’
Vicki adds: ‘I think it is a lot more drastic than what some other people do though.
‘A lot of people have said they wouldn’t be able to do it and even though my hair is short, to go to a grade one is scary.’
The money raised will go to Cancer Research.
