Ruth is currently undergoing chemotherapy and Naomi thought the head shave was a great way to say 'we're with you every step of the way'.

The event at Bridgetown School was attended by over 100 people and included music, face painting and cake stalls and children counted down from the number ten to signal the start of the head shave which lasted six minutes. The money raised will be donated to Cancer Research UK.
