Covid-19 Charity hair sweepstake madness.

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

I've decided that while we're going through this Covid-19 Lockdown madness, I'll try and do a little something to make you laugh, and to raise some money for a good cause.

Those who've known me for a while, will know that I used to have fairly crazy hair, a few years ago now I cut my hair, raised, a bit of money to the little Princess Trust, and donated the hair for a wig too.

So tonight, at 7pm, I plan to take a reference measurement;  Then open a sweepstake, £5.00 a pop, winner gets £100, and anything above the pot goes to Brads Cancer Foundation.

The idea is, you pay your £5.00 with a guess, obviously, if anyone guesses the same, then I'm afraid you'll share the pot.

Now for the amusing bit..

My hair doesn't grow just long, it grows out.. and not gracefully.

Before I set up the sweepstake, I'd just like an idea of how many people would be in, :lol:

I'm in.

@stereotype did the little Princess trust thing a few years ago and raised about £800 as well as donating the hair. I had the job of shaving it all off!

I didn't realise that, I just thought she was a pretty cool kid ! 

Stick my name down, sounds like a bit of fun for a good cause

We've had to dart out to do some shopping, but your reference is 94mm.

 

No, it's not a hugely accurate measurement, but neither will the other be.. this is mostly to raise some money for charity and if you happen to be closest you get a ton (split with all equal guesses.)

 

Guesses in new money mm please.. keeps it clean.

 

This will be measured again when we're told we can go back to some sense of normality.

 

Sarah (who won't be entering, but will probably donate anyway) will measure using the same method.

My PayPal is [email protected]

Friends and family payments with your guess in the notes. 

 

Thanks

Christ Dave, you need MORE hair not less, cover the visage a bit!  :)  Fuck man, you are nearly as ugly as me... I did say 'nearly'.

 

Paid and guessed. I 'think' I did it right but it's changed and I'm old and get confused easily.

you did fine mate.

 

My Mrs prefers me with shorter hair, and doesn't mind the ugly, so as long as she's about, I'm good.

It’s getting past taming now.
Quick recap.
Hair is currently around 94mm.
Donations to david DOT Dorson AT gmail DOT com friends and family.
Correct guess wins £100.00
More than one correct guess gets an even split of the money between correct guesses
Anything above £100.00 raised goes to Brads Cancer Foundation.
You’re guessing the length of my hair, once social distancing measures in the UK are lifted, and I can cut my hair again.

Jaysus, that is some growth there. An Afghan hound or Old English Sheepdog would be jealous of that.

Do you enter 1970s disco re-enactment competitions?

Meanwhile, a real crisis could be looming in France....!
