Heather to shave hair for 'magic' carpet at Grantham College
A Grantham woman has vowed to shave her hair to raise thousands for a sensory ‘magic’ carpet for the Daybreak Centre at Grantham College.
Heather Baptie-Bishop, who works in Grantham, is planning to go bald on March 1 2020 in a bid to raise £3,000. Staff and pupils at the college have been fund-raising for the device which is expected to cost £10,000 and will be placed in the Learning Development Centre within the college.
Heather said: “My mum works at Grantham College and teaches students with life long learning difficulties and disabilities. I’ve always wanted to shave my hair off for charity and what better cause to raise the money for. I studied at Grantham College and my mum has taught there for 20 years.”
Sarah Done, manager of the Day Break centre, said: “A ‘magic’ carpet offers lots of engagement from simple, fun activities to challenging quizzes.”
