About

My fantastically brave 13 year old daughter Tatiana had been in remission from cancer for 1.5 years, but sadly was diagnosed in February 2017 with leukaemia. Tatiana loved Lego. Whilst in hospital Tatiana had been able to play with Lego sets donated to the play team by the wonderful Fairy Bricks charity. Tatiana was a wonderfully generous daughter and suggested that other children would enjoy playing with Lego whilst in hospital just as she did. Lego is both stimulating and distracting - just what children need in hospital. Tatiana challenged me to raise some money for Fairy Bricks by having my beard shaved. The least I could do was to oblige her wish. 
Here is the beard shave time lapse video -

Here are some press articles about Tatiana's fund raising:

Sadly, Tatiana died on 23rd August 2017 after a brave fight. During her time in hospital she was thrilled to see the fund raising amount grow so high.
Sleep tight darling Tatiana, the Lego girl.
Many thanks to all that have donated so far.
