Jersey women raise more than £16,000 for Breast Cancer Support

  • Aimee, Stephanie and Sarah talk about 'braving the shave' for charity

Three women from Jersey have shaved their heads to raise more than £16,000 for charity.

Aimee Sinclair-Horgan, Sarah Burns and Stephanie Melton 'braved the shave' on Saturday 2 April with all donations going to Breast Cancer Support Jersey (BCSJ).

Aimee was one of the Pride of Britain fundraising finalists in 2021 having previously collected £14,000 for the cause as part of a sponsored walk.

Her passion to help the charity came from her own cancer journey.

Aimee said: “Following the Sunset Walk in 2021 where we raised an incredible amount of over £14k, I pledged that I would do something else to raise more money and awareness for the charity.

“Brave the Shave represents four years since my diagnosis and doing this is a milestone moment for me."

BCSJ was set up in 1998 and provides emotional, practical and financial support to islanders going through breast cancer treatment.

It also works to raise awareness of breast cancer signs and symptoms, encouraging people to check themselves regularly.
