Sally Daly, aged 52, dyed her hair a plum pink before going bald for the Brave The Shave charity.

Sally lost her son Daniel Daly when he was just two-and-a-half years old and October 12 marked the 30th anniversary since he passed away.

Sally, who works in Asda, wanted to do something big to mark such a significant year.

She said: "Normally I get sad around this time of the year and this has given me something to focus on.
