An elderly woman from Letchworth has had her hair shaved off for Macmillan Cancer Support and has raised more than £2,000.
Sandra Lewis braved the shave in support of a number of close friends and family members who have or are still going through cancer treatment.
The 75-year-old told the Comet: “I keep looking in the mirror – it feels fabulous.
“A friend of mine has had two cancer operations last year. She’s got lung and bowel cancer. She also had a scare recently when they thought she might have had a brain tumour, but thank goodness it wasn’t.
“There has been so many people around me – friends, family and neighbours – that have had cancer, so I decided I had to do something.

“I want to raise as much money as I can. I’ve now passed the £2,000 mark, I can’t believe it – and donations are still coming in.”
