Hair­dresser and fam­ily brave the shave to raise cash for char­ity

Evening Express (City Final) - - Uk & Abroad -

A HAIR­DRESSER proved she could live life on a ra­zor’s edge to raise funds for a can­cer char­ity.

Lynne Thomp­son-how­ell – who owns Yar­main & Co on Bridge Street, Ban­chory – de­cided to “brave the shave” along­side her fa­ther and mother, Ian and Mar­garet Mcin­tosh.

The group has raised more than £1,500, which will be handed over to Macmil­lan Can­cer Sup­port.

Sur­rounded by friends and fam­ily, the three went un­der the ra­zor last Satur­day, with the women re­ceiv­ing a num­ber two crop and Mr Mcin­tosh re­ceived a zero all over and a hot towel shave.

Mrs Thomp­son-how­ell said: “Orig­i­nally we thought rais­ing about £150 would be good but ev­ery­one has been so gen­er­ous, I can’t be­lieve how much we have raised. I’m ab­so­lutely de­lighted. “Ev­ery year we do some­thing for char­ity, I de­cided I would do brave the shave this year be­cause my un­cle has been di­ag­nosed with can­cer. “Ev­ery­body’s been so sup­port­ive and keep telling us we suit it short.”

cause: Lynne has her head shaved.
