Jill Murray and her mother, Heather, went under the razor in a charity head shave to raise money for Macmillan Cancer in honour of a family member who has bone cancer.

The big chop took place in the Portcullis, Arbroath, on November 11 where a group of people took part in a prize bingo, raffle and tombola to help raise £800 for the charity to close to Jill and Heather.

James McIntosh, Jill’s uncle, joined in on the night to try and boost the family total.

Jill’s grandmother is suffering from cancer and the challenge seemed little in comparison. She said: “I wasn’t nervous and to be honest I just feel the same as I did before. It was totally worth it considering the cause we are raising money for.”

Heather is keeping tabs on the funds coming in and following the final donations they hope the total will exceed £1,000.
