Hair Raising Fundraising at Portman Road
Thursday, 3rd Feb 2011 09:37
Town are supporting the Sue Ryder Febru-hairy campaign by encouraging supporters to be creative with their hairstyles when the Blues take on Sheffield United at Portman Road on Saturday. Sue Ryder – The Chantry is one of the club’s nominated charities this season.
The healthcare charity is calling on people in Suffolk to take on hair-related fundraising challenges throughout February to raise vital funds for its care centre in Ipswich, while staff and volunteers at Sue Ryder - The Chantry will be around Portman Road holding a bucket collection.
Town have given the charity two tickets to the East Anglian derby against Norwich on Thursday 21st April as a prize for the wildest hairstyle at Saturday’s match.
To enter, fans should take a photo of themselves at the stadium on the day with something distinctively Portman Road in the background and then upload it onto the Sue Ryder - The Chantry Facebook page. Sue Ryder will pick one winner from the entries.
The Febru-hairy campaign is running throughout the month and the Sue Ryder fundraising team at The Chantry can offer lots of information and support to help promote any hair-raising activities (01473 295200).
All money raised from the collection and Febru-hairy will help Sue Ryder continue to provide quality care for people living with end of life and long-term conditions including cancer, stroke, brain injury, multiple sclerosis, dementia, Huntington's disease, Parkinson's disease and motor neurone disease.
Town skipper David Norris said: "The Sue Ryder - The Chantry Febru-hairy campaign is a fun way for everyone to get involved and support the important work this local charity does."
Melissa Collett at Sue Ryder - The Chantry added: "It promises to be great afternoon for the whole family, with something to appeal to everybody. By coming along to the game with a crazy hairstyle and supporting Sue Ryder in this way, local people can help us raise much needed money that will go directly to help the hundreds of people we care for each year."

Keep Your Friends Close and Your Enemies Closer by prickettboy3
I don’t remember how old I was or even who I first heard this old proverb from, but it stuck with me and is something I have reminded myself of a fair few times over the years.
A Plea For Patience by Edmunds5
One of the biggest things I have noticed in recent times and in particular throughout this season is the feeling of inevitability that a manager will lose his job following a run of poor results or just one or two heavy beatings.

What Have We Learnt? by Pabbingtons
I had originally planned to pen this blog last week before the Birmingham game. It was to be full of praise for Mick McCarthy and the team, but that, looking forward, my original slight concern with his appointment remained, how would Mick develop our football, would we just be hoof ball but with better players?
The Birth of the German Masterplan by Bluetaff
Proper preparation and planning prevents p*** poor performance, the seven Ps – a buzz phrase thrown about with abandon and used as a punchline in meeting rooms all over the English speaking world. I have used it myself many a time but what is pertinent and what is padding?
