Date: 26 October 2016

A charitable emergency medical technician is braving the shave for a charity close to her heart.

Eliya Ferguson, who has worked with us since April 2015, has already raised more than £400 for Macmillan Cancer Support and is hoping to smash her original target of £500.

The shave, set for next Monday (31st October), will be happening at Basildon ambulance station and is one of many in a long list of chartable acts Eliya has taken part in.

With events such as mud races, parachute jumps, and charity concerts on her Good Samaritan CV she has told us that she is remaining calm ahead of her next endeavour.

She said: “If I’m honest I’m feeling very relaxed about it, it’ll grow back quickly enough; I’ve wanted to take part in a charity head shave for years.”

Eliya’s recent motivation is due to some close friends who are currently going through chemotherapy for cancer.
