Purple for November!

By Freya Peachey

I am Taking It On this November

November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month and I am Taking It On!

My Dad passed away on the 3rd of November 2019 from this horrible disease. I was just 16 at the time and because of this disease my dad won’t be able to walk me down the aisle, meet his grandchildren, see me graduate University, see me start my career, see me pass my driving test or see me live my life in general. And that isn’t okay. My goal for my fundraising is to stop other teenagers like me or anyone losing someone to Pancreatic Cancer. It is not fair that most people who get this disease die from it. It shouldn’t be that way. People shouldn’t be saying goodbye to loved ones this way. 

My idea is to dye my hair purple for the month of November (this is pending as I need to get permission from my head of 6th form) I’ll be very happy if you could sponsor me and help find a cure or help prevent people getting pancreatic cancer. I’ve shared my story and now it’s time to do something about it. 

This is in memory of my lovely Dad, Mike Peachey (29th of December 1971 - 3rd of November 2019) I love you Dad, I always will.

I did it!

I did it! I went purple.... ish 😂 it’s pink and slightly orange in some places but who cares 😂💜 thank you to everyone who has supported me I am so appreciative of everyone also check out @gingham_girls_studio on Etsy who until the end of November have kindly offered to donate 50% of profits of the purple mask I am displaying in one of these photos and well as the purple scrunchie! 💜💜 Keep donating to the link in my Bio to help beat Pancreatic Cancer, it’s unfair that the survival rate is so low but with our help we can improve this 💜💜 This one is for you Dad xxx miss you always Also thank you to my big sister Niamh for putting up with my moaning about the pain I was in when my roots were bleached, and for taking the rather dashing photos 😂💜

Purple in progress!!

After bleaching my hair last night the purple has just been applied!! I’m very excited 💜

Dying my hair

Hi guys! 
Just want to say a huge thank you to everyone who had donated and supported me so far! Unfortunately I won’t be able to dye my hair for the full month of November but I will be dying it during my half term. I have a total of 4 weeks off school due to my virtual lesson weeks falling either side of the half term. I will be going Purple even if it isn’t for the full month of November. Thank you for all your support! 


Just thought I would update you all on the Purple for November cause: 

As of right now my head of 6th Form has said I am not allowed to dye my hair purple as it states in the 6th form contract I am not allowed to dye my hair anything other than natural. We are taking this further. I will be asking my teachers for character references if necessary but hoping that it won’t go too far. I’m not happy at all with the fact I’m not allowed to dye my hair as other people at my school have dyed hair and the reason I am dying my hair is for a cause close to my heart. I’ll keep you all posted as things develop, hopefully Soon I’ll be able to say I can dye my hair purple. 

Keep donating and sharing the link as even if I can’t dye my hair I will still be fundraising some way or another for Pancreatic Cancer UK. 

Love you all 💜

Hit the Gaol!

I am beyond grateful to everyone that has donated so far! Just over and hour since I’ve uploaded this page and we’ve already hit the £100 goal I set at the start! I am so thankful to everyone who has donated and shared the link, keep donating and keep sharing! 

A very special thank you to Dean!! I am incredibly thankful! 

Please help if you can!
