Boomerang Barber Shop in Burgess Hill welcomed Jill Needham on Saturday (August 25), who braved the shave to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Jill has raised £100 so far, with more donations coming in.

She sacrificed her locks to remember her dad and to show support for her mum who has recently been diagnosed with cancer.

Jo Stone, who owns Boomerang Barber Shop in Church Walk, said: “Macmillan is an amazing charity and we think Jill should be given recognition for doing this.

Jill is now a bit chilly round the ears and a bit ‘light headed’ but also very happy to have done something for a great cause.

“If you would like to show your support, please leave any donations with us or you can text a £5 donation to 70550 using the code SHAVE 20383.”
