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.
