With the UK government encouraging those who cannot work from home and whose workplace has appropriate measures in place to counter the COVID-19 threat to return to their workplaces, a novel issue has arisen – the urgent need for a haircut.

Likewise, for those of us at home – time may seem to have stood still but follicularly-speaking – it has not. It may be that a trim or even something more drastic is needed.

Salons, hairdressers and barbers may not be opening soon but many of us look in the mirror and appear somewhat more bouffant than we would like or our hairstyle more reminiscent of the 1970s than the 2020s.

ME Research UK issues a challenge – Chop for ME – to raise funds for our charity. We hope that it can be shared widely and we hope that photos posted with #ChopforME will inspire others.

Get a home haircut, donate £10 by mobile phone, and challenge a friend.
