Hair Raising Roof Repairs to Save Casa Susi

Les Simons has offered to have his haircut/styled and dyed live on zoom to help raise money for the urgent roof repairs needed for Casa Susi.

Please click on the donate button and choose from the drop down menu what you like Les to do with the great head of hair he has grown.

The haircut with be done on the 27 March 2021 and if you donate and cannot make it you will get an invitation to watch on Zoom.

Casa Susi is a small Albergue of only 12 single beds and is famous for a friendly Australian/Spanish welcome, genuine care, support and of course the wonderful communal vegetarian meal using ingredients from their own garden. Susi and Fermin have been caring for countless pilgrims since 2017 in their Donativo Albergue, Casa Susi in Trabadelo.

Like many small business in Spain they have been forced to close due to Covid and  are hoping to open the doors again once the world heals.

In the meantime a significant problem with the slate roof  has been causing damage and must be repaired not only to protect the buildings structure but also make sure they can welcome pilgrims when Spain and the Camino reopens.

Les has been growing his hair since June 2020 as part of his Covid blues, saying “ I will not get a haircut until Covid is sorted out” he then double down at a Blue Mountains Camino Supporters Group Get Together when he said that “ I’ll we get my next haircut in Spain” thinking that he would be in Spain on 22 February 2022 to start the Via La De Plata. Sadly the way Covid is going it may not be till 2023 that he will get to Spain and he will not be able to afford to pay for two seats on the plane as he head of hair will take up so much room he will need an extra seat.

So please help Les to use his head for a fundraiser to help our Aussie friends in Spain to fix the roof of Casa Susi Albergue in Spain.
