Last summer Manda Woodburn fundraised for the Cornwall Mini Deaffest (CMD) by having her hair shaved off!

The festival was supposed to take place this year but due to the pandemic it has been postponed to next year. Manda is one of the volunteers for the CMD and thought it would be a good idea to raise money for the festival by setting up a Crowdfunding page. The event took place on 24th July at her home whilst adhering to COVID-19 rules. Co-Founder and Director of Deaffest Marilyn Willrich was the first person to cut Manda’s hair followed by Manda’s wife who got to work with the clippers!

The event has raised £1,178 in total – brilliant! Big thanks to Manda for her efforts and also thanks to those who have donated towards the festival. Your support is very much appreciated!

We will keep you posted about the date of the next CMD.
