St. George's Premier Bowls Team

presents a

Sponsored head/facial shave

The event was held at St George's Sports & Social Club on Saturday 9th November.

All proceeds were for the Nicholas Rhodes Lymphoma Fund and the monies are to be distributed between: Birmingham Children's Hospital and Ward 2 at The Princess Royal Hospital, Telford. Nicholas is presently receiving treat at the two hospitals for, 'T Cell Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma'

Despite the fact that Nicholas is in Birmingham Children's Hospital at the moment under going treatment for an infection, he was able to be present at the sponsored head/facial shave. Enormous thanks go to all the doctors and nurses at the hospital as they knew how important it was for Nicholas to be there. The evening was a great success and excelled all our expectations as monies pledged so far are in excess of 2000.00 (and still collecting). 

As these pictures show, the event started with Matthew Rhodes, Tony Rhodes and Ian Gaut, who were first for the chop.  Nicholas assisted by his mom Amanda started the shave on Matthew, his brother. I attended to Tony and Samantha (Tony's sister) attended to Ian.
