Clare Burrell and Jane Wood took on Macmillan's Brave The Shave challenge to raise money for the charity - which supports people battling cancer.

Clare said: "My mum's a breast cancer survivor and she'll be clear of the disease for nine years in October.

"Unfortunately, my aunty passed away from cancer in 2010 and this is such a worthwhile charity to do this for.

"Mum is so proud of me for having my head shaved on July 10 - both my parents were.

"Jane took on the shave for personal reasons and Karl Bright, owner of Weston's Bright Hair salon, did a fantastic job."

Clare and Jane hope their efforts can reach a £300 fundraising target to donate to the charity.
