A WOMAN is set to brave the shave at a pub to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Research.

Hexham’s Jayne Jones is having her hair shaved off at the Grapes in the town later this month.

Jayne explained that a head shave is her way of raising money for a good cause.

She said: “I’m doing it because I have my own health issues.

“I’m not fit enough to run a marathon so this is one of the ways I can raise a lot of money.

“I’ve already raised £600. I hope people come down and support me.

“You don’t know who cancer will affect. My hair will grow back, but some people’s won’t.

“I’m putting myself out there and I’m proud of what I’m doing.

“I’ve had great support from the Grapes. Carla, the landlady, is fantastic at her charity work.”

Jayne can be supported through sponsorship forms at the Grapes.
