Lee George, based at Queen Alexandra Hospital, said he has been overwhelmed at raising more than £3,000 after initially setting a £250 fundraising target.
Lee said he wanted to do his bit to help doctors, nurses and patients at the hospital in their battle against coronavirus.
The 32-year-old, from Cosham and who works in the sterilisation and decontamination department, said: ‘I have never shaved my head before and have been growing my beard for the last few months.
‘I just thought it would be a good way to raise money to help provide equipment for the hospital.’
After seeing doctors and nurses ‘going through a tough time at the moment’, Lee wanted to help ensure they remained adequately protected in their ongoing fight against the dangerous disease.
Lee said: ‘We have quite a lot of patients in the hospital at the moment with coronavirus and I wanted to help make sure there is enough personal protective equipment (PPE) where it is most needed.
‘While we seem to have enough at the moment it is important to ensure it remains this way if there is a big influx of patients.
‘I also want the money to be used to help provide ventilators for patients.’
After initially setting a target of £250, Lee has now raised more than £3,000.
‘I’ve been quite overwhelmed by it all,’ he said.
‘I have even had people I don’t know donating £100 – it’s quite mind blowing.
‘After setting up the JustGiving page I had achieved my target in just six hours.
‘I just want to keep going and see how much we can get. It’s all for an excellent cause.’
Lee had his head shaved on Thursday April 16. If you would like to donate to this cause then go to justgiving.com/fundraising/lee-georgeheadshaveqa
