Tommy wasn’t dreading this fundraiser!
Well, you don’t see this every day! Our inventive supporter Tommy Workman loved his dreads but decided it was time to ditch them…in a very unique way.
You couldn’t have missed him skateboarding around Skerries on a rainy Saturday afternoon in January with helium balloons tied to his dreadlocks! Tommy gave the public the opportunity to chop one off in exchange for a donation to Temple Street!
Tommy says, “I got the idea from a little kid I saw with a balloon tied to her hair on a sunny day in Skerries and thought it would be gas to do it with my own dreads! We had so much craic during the day and the kids around the town loved it! The grown-ups had a great night for the raffle and head shave! The people of Skerries were so generous. I can’t get over how much we made!”
He may be feeling the chill in the air now but Tommy has raised a cool €5000 for Temple Street. Thank you Tommy – you’re a legend!
