A Kirk minister had her head shaved this week to show solidarity with her daughter, who has cancer, and to raise cash for other sufferers. Alison Grainger (49), the Church of Scotland minister in Avoch, Fortrose and Rosemarkie, went under the clippers on Tuesday evening in a bid to raise funds for CLIC Sargent, the childrenâ€™s cancer charity that is supporting her family.
In November 2006, Alisonâ€™s seven-year-old daughter Sarah was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia.
Since then, Sarah has undergone regular treatment at Yorkhill Hospital in Glasgow and Raigmore Hospital in Inverness, and the family has made good use of the CLIC Sargent services available to them.
Alison said: â€œSarah doesn’t have a lot of hair as a result of her treatment and she said she didnâ€™t want to be the only bald one in the family. I decided to have my head shaved to show support and to raise some money.”
â€œI donâ€™t know what we would have done without CLIC Sargent,â€? Alison added.
