Exeter Demons Shedding Locks for Penny Brohn

We don’t typically cover club specific events here at DC as we simply don’t have the staff to do justice to all the great things going on across the #BritballNation.

That said, we’re big softies when it comes down to it, so when the Exeter Demons got in touch about their fundraiser in aid of Penny Brohn, we couldn’t help but share their fine work.

From the Exeter Demons’ Committee:

The Exeter Demons American Football team are hosting a head shave in support of the mother of one of our players who has terminal cancer. We will do this on the 17th of January in the Forum building at the University of Exeter.

Penny Brohn UK is a Bristol based charity who offer a variety of services to those who have been diagnosed with cancer, ranging from treatment support to courses to day services such as counselling and group sessions. They have been incredible in their support and we want to thank them for their hard work.

We’d like to thank Prestige Cuts Exeter for their extremely generous offer of doing the shave for free! This saves us a lot of money which can instead go straight to Penny Brohn. Be sure to visit them on Sidwell Street for a great haircut!

Any donations would be gratefully received, it might sound cliché but every little helps!

The members of the team shaving their heads will be;

Tommy Parsons, Vinni Mulcock, Ioan Plumtree, Tom Stephenson, Jack Howley-Mummery, Jordan Robertson, George Pearson, Lewis Smallman, Ian Balfour, James Attwood, Harry Vallance, Jack Richards, Rhys Simon-Lloyd, Kyle Arnold, Josh Newton, Sam Wallace and Jacob Keefe.

As we share this the Demons are already at 98% of their goal – but that doesn’t mean the #BritballNation can’t help them blow it right out of the water!


Should we aim for 200% of their goal? We think so.
