A WEBBS worker had her locks chopped in front of customers and staff to raise money for Brain Tumour Research.

Clare Callaway, from Hallow, shaved her head to raise awareness of the devastating illness after a close family member was diagnosed with a brain tumour.

The 44-year-old raised more than £2,176 and also donated her hair to the Little Princess Trust.

Clare said she wanted to reach at least £2,740 which would be enough to fund a whole day of research.

She added Brain Tumour Research received less than one per cent of the national cancer research budget, despite more children and adults under 40 dying of brain tumours than any other cancer.

“People have commented on how brave I am to have my head shaved.” Clare said.

“The reality is, the truly brave people are the ones who have to endure the invasive surgery and painful treatments and who have to face a life considerably changed or shortened, because of a brain tumour.”
