A hairdresser has raised around £1,200 by shaving her head in a bid to raise money and awareness for those living with cancer.

Karen Wells, 'Braved The Shave' for Macmillan Cancer Support at Meka Hair Design, in Smallgate, Beccles.

She said: 'For the last four years we have taken part in the Macmillan Coffee Morning but it can be quite difficult trying to cut hair and sell cakes at the same time.

'As I'm turning 50 this year I thought I would do the shave instead.'

Ms Wells initially hoped to raise £500 for the charity but the total currently stands at around £1,200.
