The leaders of a community choir raised more than £500 for charity by braving the shave.
The evening of Wednesday September 5 was not like any other March Can’t Sing Choir evening at Trinity Church Hall, as all singing was halted at 8pm for a charity event.
Choir leader and accompanist Sally Rose and Paul Hayward, also known professionally as Back Two, ‘braved the shave’ to raise more than £500 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Sally’s long hair also went in bunches to the Little Princess Trust, which provides real-hair wigs free of charge to children and young people up to the age of 24 who have suffered hair loss due to illness.
Local hairdresser Sue Hall and colleague Lisa, of Short Back & Sides, removed the pair’s locks. Friends, family and members of the choir assisted and made donations.
