I keep hearing about The Great British Curl Off but what is it all about?

We are offering you the chance to be part of the ultimate fundraising event on Saturday 4th June 2016. But this event is not for everyone: this takes guts, determination and hair! Head hair, leg hair, chest hair, back hair and even, maybe, your eyebrows? That’s right; we are asking for you to lose your locks and fling out your follicles to raise money for the animals in our care and are looking for fearless folk to take part in this hair-raising fundraiser.  

The Challenges!

Challenge 1: Be Bold, Go Bald

Dare you go bald for bunnies and get an all-over cut for cats? 

We are looking for plucky people who are willing to undergo the ultimate challenge and shave their head! Watch your family and friends’ faces as you lose every single one of your lovely locks. There are sure to be tears in the house but think of the relief of not having to wash and style your hair for the following weeks!

NB If your hair is a minimum 7” in length you can donate it to The Little Princess Trust who make wigs for children suffering hair loss.

Challenge 2: Wax On, Wax Off

Bring out your inner reptile and get rid of your body hair. Choose from a chest, back or leg wax – or maybe pledge to do all three!

Only hairy people can apply for this option, or else where would the challenge lie? You know what they say – no pain, no gain!

Challenge 3: Raise a few eyebrows

This is truly not for the vain! Have your eyebrows removed and discover what the inner alien in you looks like!

How you’ll help our animals

Ever wondered what it would take for you to shave your hair off? Or how much people will pay to see you suffer in pain as your back is waxed? Or what you would look like with no eyebrows? Well now is your chance to find out. 

In return for taking the challenge

If you pledge your vanity to us not only will we be forever indebted to you for helping us to care for so many fluffy, furry, hairy animals but we will treat you to afternoon tea beforehand and a motivational insight into the work of the RSPCA Manchester & Salford branch. You and your guests (up to 3) can spend a fun afternoon with our staff and volunteers indulging in cake, quizzes and quips about our work.

Running order!
Doors open to participants and their guests (max 3).

The afternoon tea and talk for our brave Curl Off’ers and their guests will start!


The Great British Curl Off will commence from 4.30pm. Please feel free to invite as many family and friends as you like to watch the main event but no earlier please!
