A STOURPORT sales assistant will shave off her hair for charity and in memory of her late mother who died from cancer.

Sharon Wolfe, aged 56, of Brindley Street, will brave the shave at the Bonmarché Kidderminster store, where she works, on Saturday, October 12.

The headshave will raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support and Sharon currently has a fundraiser profile on the charity's website.

Sharon's "drastic" decision to shave off her hair is in memory of her mother, who was diagnosed with cancer in 2000 and sadly died within a month.

She said: "It seems like the right time to do something.

"I have just turned 56, and my mum passed at 57. It's very emotional for me.

"Physical activity is not plausible for me these days unfortunately so this is the best, albeit drastic, decision I can take.

"I have lost over the years so many people, family, friends to cancer. It is the utmost biggest fear of most people in the world and needs to be eradicated.

"My reason for doing this through Macmillan is because of the support they provide, which must not be lost.

"They not only help the person with this dreaded disease, which can hit through the simplest of reasons, but they support every single person involved."
