the Shave' fundaiser for Macmillan on Bank Holiday Monday.
Sophie and Josh from Burnham's Unique Hair & Beauty shaved off
her locks in the foyer of the Boots store in the High Street.

charity is very close to my heart as the wonderful Macmillan nurses
cared and supported my beloved Grandmother 'Nanny Sally', whom we
lost to Cancer in 2010, and our family when she was diagnosed."
was also deprived of a grandfather due to this horrible disease
- I never even got chance to meet him."
also lost our dear friend and amazing Boots colleague 'Pat Burrows'
back in 2004. So this was very personal to me."
the shave took place, it was followed by drinks at the Dunstan for
supporters to raise a glass to loved ones.
added: "The day went fantastically well, I've raised over £1,000
so far which is amazing! We had some great raffle prizes kindly
donated by local businesses, friends and family."
