TWO women are set to have their heads shaved before crowds at a rural show to show solidarity with a friend who battling cancer.
Jersey cattle breeder Pam Crosby, of Knayton, near Thirsk, and Pam Walker, who works at Newham Grange Leisure Farm, Coulby Newham, near Middlesbrough, will have all their hair cut off at Stokesley Show, on Saturday, September 21.
Mrs Crosby said they had already raised £500 in sponsorship and buckets for donations to MacMillan Nurses will be left at the event’s Young Farmers stand.
She said: “We have a very good friend who is undergoing chemotherapy who will lose her hair and this is a way we are able to show her our support.
“We have come to realise how vital the work of MacMillan Nurses is in supporting not just those with cancer, but which also does sterling work with their families.”
