“There were many ways I thought of that I could have tried to raise money, but for me, I knew it had to be through shaving my head. So much of my body had changed through my illness and recovery, and I have been on a journey of love and acceptance of who I am now. But of the things I was most proud of in my recovery, it was finally having thick, healthy, hair again. So naturally, I shaved off all my hair. I wanted to prove to myself, and hopefully to even one other person, that your worth is not tied up in the way you look”

Jessica raised £2,480.49 going Bald for Beat in April 2021.

Please follow our Fundraising Guidelines to ensure your fundraising is suitable, legal, and safe for everyone involved. It’s important to choose a fundraising activity that is right for you.  It’s especially important that you choose an appropriate fundraising activity, if you have previous experience of an eating disorder or are in recovery.
