A HGV driver and his partner from Holbeach St Johns have made a pact of self-sacrifice for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Darren Woodberry beat the pain and had his legs waxed, while Roxanne Wilson had her head shaved at Not Just Nailz in Spalding.
The couple hope to raise at least £500 for Macmillan whose staff cared for Darren’s sister and mum-of-two Anita Baldwin of Gedney Hill who died of cervical cancer in August 2011, aged just 35.
Roxanne, who took part in Macmillan’s Brave the Shave campaign, said: “Myself and Darren got together three years ago and so, sadly, I never got to meet Anita.
“But from what I heard, she was a very brave woman who was helped by Macmillan and so we wanted to do something to raise awareness of the charity because you never know when you might need it.”
Roxanne also showed her support for children with hair loss through cancer by donating her hair to the Little Princess Trust, a charity that gives out free wigs to youngsters across the UK and Ireland who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment.

Roxanne said: “Anita never got to meet her new nieces and nephews, but her memory will always live on through them and it would be nice to do something else for Macmillan in the future
