Brave Betty shaves her hair for charity

On Christmas Eve, a brave Betty Sellars Page shaved off her hair for Macmillan Cancer Support, raising over £2500; she has also donated her hair to the Little Princess Trust to be made into wigs for children with cancer.

After, still with a lovely head of hair, but much shorter

If you wish to donate here’s the link.

Betty says on her page:

The reason for my head shave is that I know many friends and family who have suffered. But I think that it is harder on children and teenagers, I am not saying that it is worse. Cancer is cancer, nothing more nothing less. But children might find coping with this illness harder, losing hair, missing out on friends. So I will be shaving my hair for the children to make wigs and make them feel more comfortable with their appearance ❤️

Martin Reay of Budehaven School says: we are all incredibly proud of her amazing Act of Kindness. Not surprised. Well done to Betty on your brave action to help others.
