A FEARLESS mum-of-four will shave her head for charity next month at a fundraising event for St Barnabas House hospice.

Kat Shephard, 33, will lose her locks during a racy charity ladies night at Shoreham Community Centre, Pond Road, on Friday, June 6.

“I am quite a bubbly person and I will do anything if it means helping someone out,” she said. “My husband thought I was nuts.”

Kat, who lives in Middlesborough but is originally from Crawley, lived in Worthing for five years where she became friends with event co-organiser Nicola Smith, 37, of Shoreham.

Nicola Smith and Amanda Jones, 42, of Gravelly Crescent, Lancing, held two similar events last year raising over £1,000.

Amanda’s stepfather passed away at St Barnabas in December, 2012, after battling cancer and the pair say the hospice provides outstanding care.

Nicola said: “It’s all round care as they also support the families, which continues after they have sadly lost their loved ones for however long they need it.”

The evening is strictly over 18s only, with fun provided by a drag act and two male entertainers. There will also be a raffle and a DJ.

Tickets cost £10 in advance or £15 on the door and can be purchased through www.ticketsource.co.uk/event/48911 or by calling Nicola on 07411 926459 or Amanda on 07914 001929.
