Elbie Todd of Island Roads raised over £1,000 by having her head shaved for Macmillan Cancer Support. She was supported by her colleague Joanna Westwood, who not only organised the fundraiser but also made sure he went through with it by taking control of the clippers!
Elbie said: “The charity is very dear to me and this is my way of saying thank you for the support and amazing work Macmillan is doing for people living with cancer.
“I was not that nervous until I saw the chair and everyone waiting to see me shaved. Then I knew, wow, this is really happening, there’s no turning back!
“Staff were amazing – they really encouraged me all the way and I am just so pleased we have raised a great amount for such a good cause. I am so grateful to my colleagues.”
And what does Elbie think of her new look? She added: “It feels a bit strange but in a good way. I think I will be feeling the cold a bit more for a few weeks.”
