Team­ing up to go a cut above

Kent Messenger Maidstone - - NEWS -

Two can­cer sur­vivors teamed up to raise more than £200 for MacMil­lan Can­cer Sup­port af­ter com­bin­ing a cof­fee morn­ing and head shave.

Lu­cie Shoer, of Retro 47, in Man­gravet Av­enue, and Stephen Young met by chance as he looked for some­body who could lop his locks off.

Cakes were on sale and Mr Young had his hair cut at the hair­dressers and they raised £207 for the char­ity in to­tal.

Lu­cie said: “I had breast can­cer and Stephen was a can­cer sur­vivor and had raised money. We thought we had too much food but it all went.

“It was a com­plete fluke I met Stephen. He wanted to do Brave the Shave for MacMil­lan and he came in look­ing for some­one to do it for him. He had never been in be­fore but we said we were do­ing the cof­fee morn­ing and we would do it then.”
