A sponsored head shave in support of a young Doncaster dad diagnosed with cancer has topped the £3,000 mark.
A sum of £3,335 was raised for Cancer Research by the brother, cousin and five friends of Scott Richardson of Kirk Sandall.
Doncaster Council employee Scott, 27, is married to Kirsten with a son Harry, 22 months. He was told he had bowel cancer in January this year, and is being treated in Doncaster.
His brother Matt Richardson organised the February 9 headshave, with cousin Dan Hirst and friends Jack Barnes, Tom Scott, Aaron Smith, Luke Pepper and Kyle Fletcher.
Matt said: “We are really grateful and overwhelmed by the support we have received and the money we have subsequently raised for Cancer Research. It means a lot to us all and we can’t thank everyone enough.”
Kirsten Richardson said: “We think the boys are amazing for doing the head shave and find it incredible that so much money has been raised in such a short space of time. Everyone has been so kind.”
