In what is a tough year for Sutton Bridge mum Sarahjane Bunn having her head shaved was just one more challenge.
However, she roped in family and friends when she went to Al’s Barber shop in Long Sutton to undergo the shave for Macmillan Cancer Support.
In the end 12 of them had their head shaves, raising at least £1,000 for the charity.
Among those to go under the razor were Sarahjane’s sons Owen Reeve (23) and Lee Reeve (21)and partner Rick Morris – her daughters Francesca Reeve (25) and Kayleigh Bunn (14) opted to keep their locks.
Sarahjane was diagnosed with breast cancer in July and her third session of chemotherapy is coming up soon.
She said: “It was quite an afternoon really. It wasn’t scary. I went first so I wouldn’t bottle it.
“We raised over £1,000 between the 12 of us and I am definitely pleased with that.
“I have got six goes with chemotherapy and then I have to go in for another operation because there are more cancer cells growing, so it’s going to be a long year.”
Those taking part in the head shave, apart from Sarahjane, her partner and sons, were Cynth Venni, Matt Day, Samantha Underhill, Damien Ellis, Charlie McKenna, Deon Damon, Leigh Bines and Oliver Sergeant.
Sarahjane said: “I would like to thank everyone who has helped to make the day go as well as it did and for the money raised by everyone, including Al’s Barber Shop and the Con Club at Long Sutton. I want to thank my mum Phyllis Dye, who took my sponsor forms everywhere.”
Sarahjane said virtually every business approached about taking the sponsorship forms had agreed willingly, for which she was grateful.
