Essential beauty salon on Navigation yard, off Carre Street in Sleaford saw one of its staff members doing the Brave the Shave for the cancer charity.
Ellie Field had all her hair shaved off for Macmillan. The team decided to make a bit of an event of it and also got lots of businesses to donate prizes for a grand raffle and the salon donated all the day’s earnings.
Salon owner Anna-Marie Eskrett explained: “Two staff lost mums to cancer.
“The event went really well with a good turnout of visitors and we raised £1,200 on the day.
“We completely sold out of a book of raffle tickets.”
It was a little fun day too with other things going on.
“We had cakes on sale and lots of people turned up to watch the head shave. It was a really good day.
“Ellie went through with the cut and had it all off.”
Anne-Marie said Ellie has already noticed the cold and will probably have to invest in a hat.
