From the Concert Band conductor Anthony Marsden


The kids have probably told you that I’m chopping off my long hair at the end of this term after 5 years of growing it out.  I’ve decided to turn it into a fundraiser to raise money for the Mark Hughes Foundation who raise funds for research into brain cancer, a disease that’s affected my family recently. The hair I’m hoping to donate to the Variety charity who make wigs for Leukaemia patients, but I set the goal that if I raised $2000 before the end of the term I’d shave my head completely bald! The support so far has been overwhelming, and yes we’ve passed the $2k mark so the clippers are coming out later on. I’m running the fundraiser till the end of the term so there’s still time to donate to this great cause if you’d like to.
