Dozens gathered in the Black Swan in Spalding to watch as a mother and daughter had their heads shaved for charity.

Tracey and Devon Baxter, from Chesnut Avenue, have raised £344 for Macmillan Cancer Support so far – with donations continuing to flow in.

Mum Tracey, 46, said: “It was a really good day – very eventful! The people at the Black Swan were so supportive.”

Onlookers watched as Nigel Baxter and Karen Robinson did the honours – setting to work to rid the pair of their long locks.

The event comes ahead of the Shave or Style Macmillan week next month in which people are being encouraged to get a new hair-do, or shave it all off, in support of those with the disease.

While the mother and daughter both had their heads shaved in a show of solidarity, Tracey believes it was an especially charitable act on the part of her 16 year old daughter.

“I’m very proud of Devon. At her age, looks are very important, so it was a brave thing for her to do.”
