70 year-old Gloria in Head Shave for Blind Benefit




A 70 year-old lady from Lowry Drive, Houghton Regis, has vowed to have her head shaved for charity.

Gloria Smith will raise money for RP Fighting Blindness during a Bingo night at Lewsey Farm Community Centre next month.

Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is a disease of the eye that leads to loss of vision and blindness. RP Fighting Blindness works hard to stimulate and fund cutting edge research to find a treatment or cure and support those affected.

Gloria told News Desk, "I've always helped, when I can, to raise funds for this charity since it affected family friends. I am getting quite apprehensive now, but I'll be supported by friends and relations on the day. It's not really brave of me, the real bravery is with those who suffer from RP. My hair will be quite thick when the time comes to have it shaved off, but I don't mind, it will grow back."

Wayne Kett, from Lunatic Fringe hairdressers at Hillborough Crescent, has promised to do the cut on September 2nd. He told News Desk, "She'll be fine. I'll do a Number 1 all over on her."
