A Ford dealership employee has had her hair shaved to raise funds for a cancer charity.

Jackie Foreman, a service adviser, has been working at the Huntingdon branch of TC Harrison for 14 years.

On Friday (October 24), the 54-year-old went under the clippers, which were entrusted to hairdressing students from Huntingdonshire Regional College.

The head shave was watched by a large crowd of staff who were in fancy dress for Wear It Pink Day in aid of the Breast Cancer Campaign.

Last year, Mrs Foreman raised £500 for charity when she dyed her hair pink and this year she has already raised £1,051.

“I said if we did the ‘pink day’ again this year I would shave my head, so I did.

“They cut the ponytail off first and that will be donated to the Little Princess Trust, which makes wigs for cancer patients.

“Then they used the clippers and there was nothing left. It felt a bit weird at first but it’s growing on me.

“I couldn’t have done it without the support of the team here at Huntingdon.”
