Mohicans and marathons make money for children's hospice

Geoff Morton - Mohican

One member of staff from Chesterfield College is going to great lengths to make money for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice. With one marathon under his belt and a sponsored hair cut with a difference Geoff Morton is almost half way to raising £1000 for his favourite charity.

His first fundraising activity of the year was to transform his silver locks into a multi-coloured mohican with the help of hairdressing students, Tina Bull and Shannen Toyne at the College.

He finished the Sheffield Marathon last weekend in just over 3 hours despite having to stop for an emergency massage to get rid of cramp. He plans to complete the Great North Run later in the year to ost his fundraising efforts.

Geoff said: “I first came across Bluebell Wood 7 years ago when I helped to build a sensory garden at the hospice. The work that they do to support sick children and their families is absolutely amazing and I knew I wanted to support them to provide this fantastic service to more people. Getting a crazy haircut and running a couple of marathons is the least I can do.”
