Jenny Hale, who lives on Salhouse Road, Little Plumstead, had her head shaved as part of a Macmillan Coffee Morning at Heathlands Community Centre and Social Club at Blofield Heath.

A retired nurse, Mrs Hale said she had witnessed many families touched by the disease, and that Macmillan Cancer Support was a charity close to her heart.She said: "I nursed a lot of people with cancer - some recovered but some didn't. Everyone is touched by cancer. I knew, from my career, that when people have chemotherapy and radiotherapy, what they go through is very traumatic for them."

The sponsored shave raised £1,000, taking the fundraiser total to £3,700.
