Hair today, gone tomorrow for Salisbury dad!

Seth Roberts Hair Cut in March 2018

5:35am 14th February 2018

A Salisbury dad is cutting his long locks off to help a charity set up by friends.

Seth Roberts got interested in fundraising when his eldest son Dylan was born with a congenital heart disease.

At just three years old, Dylan has been in and out of hospital more times in his life than most people and had help from hospitals and charities all over the country

Seth knows how vital those charities are and how desperate they are for money to be raised

That's why he's fundraising for The Courage Foundation UK.

The Courage Foundation seeks to support children and families as they live with bereavement of losing a sibling.

In particular the focus of the Courage Foundation is to provide fun and exciting opportunities through ‘Therapy through Themeparks’ for children to enjoy being children, have fun and make memories afresh whilst remembering their sibling who has died.


Seth explains why he chose this charity.

"When young people die in films, you will often hear the phrase 'it's something no parent should have to go through'. Unfortunately, it is something that a lot more parents have to go through than you might think and bereaved siblings often find it even harder to come to terms with.

"The Courage Foundation UK are providing therapy through theme parks which is aimed at helping the whole family come to terms with their loss."

As a self-proclaimed 'rocker', Seth's had his hair long for years!

"I've been describing it to people as going from 'rock legend' look to 'pop sensation' look because it's not something I'd necessarily feel comfortable with.

"It's just been part of who I am for a long time so making that change is quite significant for me."

As well as cutting the hair off to raise money, Seth will be sending it off to the Little Princess Trust to hopefully make wigs for children who have lost their hair.

The aim is to raise at least £500, of which he's already over half way towards.
