Deputy Manager of the Black Dog in Aberdeen, Maria McGill, is calling for donations to help reach her target of £1,600 after shaving her head recently to raise money for the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH).


SAMH operates over 60 services in communities across Scotland providing mental health and social care support for those who need it. Maria wanted to support the charity, so she bravely signed up to have her head shaved by hairdresser, Steph McLeod, who also works at the pub.


So far she has raised over £500, but she is still hoping to reach her target. She said: “I have never done something like this before, but I wanted to do what I can to help and I was actually quite excited to have my head shaved! It’s all for a good cause and SAMH does wonderful work throughout the north. I can’t think of a more worthwhile charity to be supporting.


“I want to thank everyone who came along to support me and all those who donated funds. If you haven’t already donated, it’s not too late – the more funds we can raise to support this incredible cause, the better”


Donations can either be made by popping into the pub or via Maria’s ‘Brave the Shave’ Just Giving Page:
