Gorgeous Curvy Kate model and former Star in a Bra winner Lizzie Haines has pledged to shave off her luscious locks on Valentine’s Day 2014 to raise money for breast cancer awareness charity CoppaFeel!
Lizzie is hoping to raise £10,000 for the charity and will be shaving her head wearing Curvy Kate’s new CoppaFeel! Smoothie bra which will go on sale next year with the CoppaFeel! boob check reminder label sewn in.
As an ambassador for Curvy Kate, Lizzie was introduced to CoppaFeel!’s work to improve early detection rates for breast cancer at a recent event, which inspired her to do what she can to raise money for the charity.
‘It’s as much about awareness and keeping it in the public eye as it is fundraising,’ says Lizzie. ‘Curvy Kate is working with CoppaFeel! on several initiatives next year and I want to support the good work that they will be doing, along with the amazing efforts of CoppaFeel!
‘This is happening to women in my demographic, to women who are my friends and it is more important than ever that everyone sit up and take notice.’
The head-shaving event will take place at Manhattan 34 in Leicester and you can go along to watch for a small fee. There will be prizes, cocktails and entertainment!
Lizzie has just three months to reach her target and we encourage everyone to help her get there. If you’re a fan of Curvy Kate on Facebook, you can also set her tasks via the brand’s Facebook page and follow her progress.
