Kind-hearted Caroline Millen has braved the shave in a bid to pledge her support to sister Leanne who is battling cancer.
The 42-year-old faced the chop last week to raise charity cash and as a tribute to Leanne Freeman, who was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer just before Christmas.
Caroline said: “You always think it will never happen to you or your family. So many people affected by this terrible disease. “As a woman I think hair is a big part of how we look, and how womanly we can feel.
“Often is you’re having a good hair day you feel a bit better, or have a spring in your step, and it doesn’t sound like a big deal but it can upset people. I wanted to show her that I am with her every step of the way.”
The shave took place at Caroline’s workplace – Morrisons supermarket on Nottingham Road. £911 has been raised so far, which smashed the original £500 target. The proceeds are set to be split equally and donated to Macmillan Cancer Support and to a fund set up to help pay for Leanne’s two young children to go into nursery during her upcoming chemotherapy sessions.
