A Royston woman who had her locks shaven off for charity said it is cancer sufferers, not her, who are the brave ones.
Gill Robinson had her hair cut off as part of the Brave The Shave for Macmillan month, to support her 83-year-old mum Eileen who suffers from non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
The 61-year-old said her mum initially was against the idea, but is now ‘quite proud’ of her efforts.
Gill said : “Those that know I have done this for charity have all said how brave I am.
“I think the people who are cancer victims are the brave ones as most that I have so far encountered have accepted what is happening and are just getting on with it.”

Gill set a fundraising target of £500, but thanks to campaign led by her husband and daughter, has raised far in excess of that figure. She expects the final total to be in the region of £700.
