“I thought if by saving a lot of money and not having a haircut for 12 months, I can raise a few dollars for the hospice, then why not?” he mentioned.

Mr Millard mentioned workers on the hospice went above and past to present care and compassion.

“I encourage the community to rattle their dags, tip themselves upside down, shake all their loose change out,” he mentioned.
