ANN BROUGHTON who had her hair shaved off in a shop window on her 58th birthday, has raised over £2,300 for breast cancer charities.
Ann, from St Neots, had her close shave in the shop window of Brittains furnishers, where she works in St Neots High Street. She said she expected to raise only about £500.
"I'm delighted, I got so much support from the company and customers and people I know from all sorts of places."
Ann decided to shed her locks - in deepest winter on January 24 - in moral support with her sister Pauline, who lives in Germany and is suffering from Hodgkins disease and her late sister, Carol who died of breast cancer in July 2005, having fought the disease for some years.
Ann said: "I expected to be cold and bought some nice hats said but my hair has grown back quite quickly.
"I would particularly like to thank St Neots
