The 39 year old mother of two, who works as the manager for Ladybirds Day Nursery in Elm Road, Wisbech, said: “It’s down to grade one and wasn’t as scary as I thought it would be.

“My kids think I’m mad but I am bald and proud and am really pleased to have brought in so much money,” she said.

The head shave took place at Ladybirds courtesy of hairdresser Alison Day of The Barber Shoppe in Wisbech.
