A Dundee woman is holding a fundraising event at her barber’s shop on Strathmartine Road to help a terminally ill woman whose wedding money was stolen by a callous thief.
Christina Campbell is urging people to come for a haircut at Fadez LSH Barber’s on Friday, with all takings from the day going towards her friend Jennie Cameron’s big day.
Mum-of-five Jennie, 32, has been given just a year to live after a devastating cervical cancer diagnosis.
However, she is determined to enjoy every moment of her wedding to partner Francis Yule in September.
Her plans recently suffered a major setback when £700 was taken in a raid on her home.
She had set the money aside to pay for a photographer and kilts for her children.
Christina said friends and supporters were rallying round to give the happy couple a day they would never forget.
“Jennie and I became friends through our children. Our sons, who are now 15, have been best friends since they were five,” she explained.
“She is due to be married in three weeks and some lowlife walked into her house and stole some of her wedding and birthday money.
“I will be doing haircuts from 2-7pm on Friday and I’d encourage people to come along.
“Someone has now offered their photography services for free, so Jennie is sorted for that but there are other expenses.
“I want to help with whatever I can, even if it’s just to raise a bit of cash for her honeymoon. They’re going to Loch Lomond for a few days just to have a break, so the money could go towards that.”
