5:08pm Friday 27th September 2013 in News
CARE assistant Annette Embleton had her head shaved by her husband Hughie during a fundraising event for Macmillan Cancer Support.
She said: “It feels a lot cooler since I shaved my head, but it’s all been worth it. I have raised £550 from sponsorship.”
Care home staff, residents and family members raised a further £140 through the coffee morning and a tombola and raffle.
The home’s administrator, Liz Milgate, said: “It has been a fantastic day. It was very brave of Annette to have her hair shaved.”
