A keyworker for Ambient Support, a UK provider of social care, has shaved her hair to raise money for The Croft in Amersham.

Andrea Learoyd, who is a cook at The Croft which provides personalised care and support to older people, shaved off her long blonde hair on June 26 and raised over £600.

The event took place outside with residents enjoying ice creams, bunting and balloons whilst cheering Andrea on as her locks were cut.

Now the challenge is complete, residents are deciding what they’d like to spend the money on with ideas including a Tropical fish tank and new games for the lounge or entertainment from a 50’s singer, a dancing dog and a visit from the Chippendales.

Whilst the ideas are varied, all residents agreed that, no matter what, Andrea must be involved so she can be thoroughly thanked for all that she has done.

Andrea who has worked for 4 years at The Croft said: “There was nothing in particular I wanted the money to be spent on, I just wanted to give it to the service for the residents to choose a treat for themselves and bring some cheer during this period of lockdown.”
