Fancy a haircut? Tanya went above and beyond this by shaving
all her hair off to raise money for SV2.
Tanya first heard about SV2 when two people she knew were
sexually assaulted. ‘On both occasions SV2 helped them to work through the
assault, to face and come to terms with what had happened and to decide how they
wished to proceed. The counselling helped both to pick themselves up.’
It is hard seeing people you care about having to go through
something so traumatic, but with the right support people can pick up the
pieces and gradually feel better.
Tanya wanted to give something back to the organisation that
had helped two important people in her life. So where did shaving hair come
‘I have a long fringe which I hide behind – so by shaving my
hair off I am making myself feel exposed and vulnerable.’ Tanya wanted to show
solidarity with her friends and others who are, through no fault of their own,
forced to feel that way.
Tanya set herself the target of raising £300 and was adamant she would not do it for a penny less! At the beginning of November 2017, Tanya had raised £376 and kept her promise!
Behind that fringe was a pair of brave eyes.
Well done and thank you for support.
