Heather said: “I think the Brave the Shave event went really well. There was a great turnout and we’ve managed to raise lots of money for a great cause.

“I’ve been overwhelmed by everyone’s generosity and support, it really does mean so much. Over the last few weeks in particular, Macmillan have been a great support for my family, so this is my way of saying thank you to them for their amazing work. Thank you to everyone who donated and everyone who came down to support us on Tuesday. Thank you to Toni Angeloni at Toni’s Barber Shop for doing the honours, my friend Jeni for making cakes, my husband Paddy and the tattoo artists and customers of The Tattoo Shop, Darshan Gajjar for filming our little documentary about our Brave the Shave event and to our families for supporting us.”
