Support for a charity hit by thieves is still going strong, with further fundraising efforts resulting in a £400 cheque presentation.
Cancer Hair Care – which includes the Caring Hair Studio – in Stevenage’s Middle Row was broken into in February and crooks made off with £5,000 worth of stock and equipment.
Since then, more than £15,000 has been raised for the charity, which provides hair treatments and wigs for cancer sufferers.
Lucy Macnab – who is having chemotherapy for breast cancer – has been selling knitted hair bands in Cardies on Stevenage’s High Street and Jo Gates Hair Salon in Middle Row, and has now presented a £400 cheque to the charity.
Lucy, of Bude Crescent in the town, said: “They do fantastic work. They offer brilliant support and talk you through everything, and it’s all free.
“I’m so grateful for the help they have given me.”
The hair bands are still on sale in Cardies, priced £3.99.
