Turn a bad hair day into something good, and raise money for a very worthwhile charity
What bad hair day?
To raise much-needed funds for Great Ormond Hospital, the children's charity is once more calling on the Great British public to take part in its annual Bad Hair Day appeal.
On Friday 12 February, 2016, volunteers who have signed up on the GOSH website for a fundraising pack can don a crazy wig, mousse their hair into a mohawk, or even dye some pink strands, to raise money. To sign up and for more information and fundraising ideas, visit the Great Ormond Street Hospital website.

The girl in the red cardigan in the photo above has actually been a patient at GOSH. She’s called Rebecca Carter and was treated at GOSH as a baby.
Here is Rebecca's story:
The day after Rebecca was born doctors detected that she had a congenital heart defect called Tetralogy of Fallot. At five days old she was referred to Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), where the condition was confirmed and the family were told that she would need open-heart surgery to survive. At seven months, Rebecca underwent emergency heart surgery, which successfully repaired the defect. Today, Rebecca is a healthy, happy little girl who is taking part in Bad Hair Day on Friday 12 February 2016.
