BOURNEMOUTH: Hairs please!

Hairs please!

Hairs please! Julie Wood of Yellow Buses who had her head shaved for charity.

Bus driver Julie Wood pulled out all the stops for charity and allowed a colleague to shave off all her hair.

She gave up her locks on Yellow Buses’ Mufti Day that raised £1,500 for Cancer Research UK.

Julie has seen close up the devastating effects of cancer and wanted to help combat the disease.

So she allowed fellow driver Kerry Stoklasa to get her clippers out and remove her red barnet.

Colleagues watched in the Bournemouth town centre HQ as Julie’s hair fell to the floor.

Another colleague, Sarah Gill, baked cakes and sold them and the company also made a donation.

Julie said: “After seeing what cancer can do I wanted to do my bit to raise some money.

“Having my head shaved seemed like a good idea and colleagues, friends and my passengers were incredibly generous.”

Jenni Wilkinson, Yellows’ Head of Marketing and Customer Excellence, said: “Our Mufti Day is a regular event in the calendar and the staff always get involved.

“We are really proud of Julie for such a selfless contribution and raising awareness.

“We were very happy to get behind her initiative and help her raise money for such a great cause.

“Our charity days raise money for a variety of causes and as always it’s down to our wonderful staff and passengers.”
