Stuck at home, unable to start the new trampoline fitness classes she had planned for Aylsham, Gemma Priddy came up with an idea to help raise money to help NHS staff and volunteers – a headshave.

Gemma, a trainee eyelash technician and shadow Boogie Bounce teacher alongside her mum, Debby, will be losing her blonde hair on Friday – and hopes to raise £1,500 for NHS Charities Together as a result.

“My reason for shaving my head is simply because I’ve felt frustrated being stuck at home and feeling like I can’t help or do anything in this horrible situation we all find ourselves in,” said Gemma, who has three children and lives in Bure Meadows.

Gemma Priddy will be shaving her head to raise money for NHS staff and volunteers.

“I have quite a few friends who work for the NHS, some of whom are on the front line at the NNUH. Some are having to live without their children for weeks at a time and they’re working incredibly long hours.

“I’m so appreciative of the work of our NHS heroes, both locally and nationally. This is just my small way of trying to raise some money for a very worthy cause.”

Gemma, 37, has already raised £510 towards her target and is hoping to raise even more through her Gemma’s Hair Today Gone Tomorrow Just Giving Page.
