Cafe owner ready to give up her locks again

WHEN Tabitha Drescher loses her locks next month, it won't be for the first time.

The owner of the Floating Cafe Grantham is hosting a World's Greatest Shave event in March and will be leading by example as one of those shaving their head.

This will mark the second time Ms Drescher has let the clippers do the work for the important cause.

She first took part in the annual fundraising event after a close friend had a cancer scare.

"If shaving my head can help raise money for other people, I don't mind not having hair,” Ms Drescher said.

"It's a good cause.”

But she won't be going it alone, with another two volunteers ready to say goodbye to their manes.

The fundraising event on Sunday, March 17, starting at 1pm, will be raising funds as part of Team J&J, in addition to the team's main event held on the Saturday.

Ms Drescher said the Grantham event was about reaching as many people as possible.

"We decided to do an event out this way to involve more people,” she said.

"A bit more promotion and raise a bit more money for them.”

The event at the cafe will also feature markets, face painting, raffles and hair colouring.

Ms Drescher said they were still seeking volunteers to brave the shave and anyone interested should contact the cafe.
