Braving the Shave! Help Glenda raise money for the Foundation
Saracens supporter Glenda Gregory is raising money for the Saracens Sport Foundation and needs your support!
Glenda, who we are proud to have in the Saracens Family as a supporter and Pioneer, is shaving her head in aid of the Foundation’s amazing community projects.
Here’s why she is doing it in her own words:
“Most people don’t know a great deal about me as a person. I’m a mum to three amazing boys and have all the daily struggles most families endure daily.
“However, one of my sons has a life limiting disease known as Cystic Fibrosis, he is my world and my inspiration really. He doesn’t let things get in his way, but life can be very cruel with CF. He was treated to a VIP day at the Summer Gathering in 2018 because he was in hospital for the Premiership Final. He met his heroes,including his ultimate hero Brad Barritt, and had the most amazing day all thanks to the club.
“The club didn’t have to do this, but they did and I cant thank them enough for that. So me doing this is my way to ensure many more children and young adults get a special moment or just to continue on with what the Foundation are doing day in day out.
“I personally cannot thank the support and friendships I have gained over the years at Saracens, as a supporter and a Pioneer for six years. So for me I want to give back to an amazing cause.
“These are very difficult times as of now. We can’t come and go as we please, many of us are isolated, away from the things and the people we dearly love. Hopefully this won’t last for more than a few weeks but just imagine if that was how life was 24/7, 365 days of the year.
“I wanted to raise money for the Foundation, but I had to think outside the box. We are all home and I wanted an impact, lightbulb moment I suppose. Being a female who visits the hairdresser or colours her hair, what better way. Its very unusual to see a woman shave their head , especially live on Fcaebook!
“The remarkable Saracens Sports Foundation works in north London with a wide range of people that need help and support to overcome challenges like these on a daily basis. Supporting the most amazing community projects they reach out to people and give them and their families that unique brand of help, support and mentoring.
“So with that said and in the current climate of no live sport (rugby in my case) to entertain us and no expensive trips to the Aviva to fund, I’m calling on the #sarriesfamily to help me raise a bucket load of cash as I will be shaving my HEAD.”
Glenda will be doing so on Saturday 18thApril at 3pm which can be viewed on Facebook Live on her Facebook page.
Thank you for raising so much money, Glenda. Everyone at Saracens appreciates your efforts.
