Sam has worked at Rodney House Care Home, in Trewartha Park, for six years, currently being the home’s administrator.

The bold act was sponsored by Weston businesses which included Grander Grooms and Graceful Gowns alongside The Elms Funeral Care Home.

Rodney House deputy manager, Leanne Tedstill said: “Sam is caring and supportive not only to the residents but also to the staff here as well, she will always go above and beyond to help us all out. One in a million.”

All of Sam’s shaved hair was plaited and will be donated to The Little Princess Trust.
