Caron Pointin and Hilary Weir braved the shave to raise cash for Macmillan Cancer Support. Both work at the Munhaven care home in Mundesley where they were shorn of their locks.

Hair stylist Sue Beighton, who runs the Rock, Paper and Scissors salon in the village helped wield the clippers.

Miss Pointin went for a close crop with a number 1 head shave while Mrs Weir decided on a slightly less severe style.

Together they have so far raised more than £1,000, with both exceeding their targets.

Care support worker Miss Pointin lost her parents and a close friend Sue Bonce to the disease.

She said: 'It feels liberating, I went to give my hair a brush and then realised I did not have any. The support we have had from people has been amazing and I want to thank them from the bottom of my heart for their generosity.'

The pair are now planning to part with their mops again next year for another charity head shave.

Team leader Mrs Weir said: 'My family have been affected by cancer and it is a cruel, cruel disease. We have chosen to do this, but the people who have cancer have no choice about losing their hair.'
