Bride shaves head on wedding day in tribute to husband

A British bride did the unusual as she wed her childhood sweetheart last Friday in a ceremony that included her shaving her head at the reception. No, it wasn’t tradition.

Bride, Lyons shed her brunette locks in tribute to her new husband Craig, who was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer last year.

She intends donating her hair to an organisation that makes wigs for severely sick children, she and her husband also encouraged their wedding guests to donate to other charities on their behalf.

The couple used their wedding as an opportunity to raise charity donations.

Lyons wrote on her fundraising page, “On our wedding night, our celebration party will also serve as a fundraising event where I will complete my head shave task in his honour and to honour and support those affected by life limiting illness.

“Charities such as this rely on public support and funds to help support families and sufferers during difficult times. Please help us to help others, no matter how big or small, every penny matters and will be received with heartfelt thanks.”

Very selfless of them.
