Burnham-On-Sea hovercraft chairman Alan Miller has shown his support for the Western Daily Press' Lelaina Rescue Appeal by having his hair dyed orange!
The colourful character visited Victoria Hair & Spa, Bridgwater on Friday April 29 to have the temporary makeover, which matches the colour of the wristbands being sold to raise money for the Burnham hovercraft and RNLI.
Pictured with Alan are Victoria Snook, owner of the hair salon, and her 6-week-old daughter, Violet. All three are sporting the orange wristbands.
Victoria said: "This is a very worthwhile appeal and we're delighted to help all we can, even if it means changing someone's appearance!"
an orange wristband and help the Lelaina Rescue Appeal
Wristbands are the latest 'must have' fashion accessory and now the Western Daily Press has had orange ones exclusively made to support the Lelaina Rescue Appeal.
It's nearly three years since little Lelaina Hall died after becoming trapped in mudflats at Berrow.
As the sea swirled around her, no-one could reach her - alone, cold and frightened her death was a tragedy which could have been prevented. She could have been your daughter, grand-daughter, niece or cousin.
Press readers were determined her death would not be in vain and
within weeks £115,000 was raised to pay for a hovercraft, which
could get across the mud, its boathouse and vital equipment for its
crew in Burnham-On-Sea.
Each wristband costs just £1 and 51p from each one sold will be given to the Lelaina Rescue Appeal, 34p pays for the cost of the band and 15p pays VAT.
The bands are inscribed with the words "Western Daily Press Lelaina Rescue Appeal".
Alan Miller, chairman of the Burnham hovercraft, said: "Let's all band together and make this a huge success. I'd like to see every person in Burnham wearing one of these bands."
Show your support by buying your wristband at either the Burnham hovercraft station or RNLI station during the May Day Holiday weekend.
