A woman’s charity head shave became a real family affair when she was joined by her dad, husband and father-in-law.
Faye Thompson, 30, a housing officer for the district council in Sidmouth, was inspired to lose her locks by her mum’s battle with cancer.
Faye, 30, of Raleigh Road, Ottery St Mary, raised £1,700 for Macmillan’s Brave the Shave campaign – three times her original target.
She had her hair cut off alongside her father, Michael Wolfenbale, 62. Her husband, Russell Thompson, 37, and brother-in-law Kirk Broderick, 32, also braved the shave.
Faye’s mother, Gillian Wolfenbale, 55, was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2015. Gillian is now in remission.
Faye said: “I think we did amazing. I am totally pleased with the amount raised.
“I had mine done first, then my dad had his done and, as it happened, my brother-in-law and husband got carried away and shaved their hair. It was a really good event.”
