Asda worker Kelly Miller proved she was a cut above the rest when she had her hair shaved off for charity.

She even invited her boss to make the first cut by snipping off her ponytail.

Kelly (38) had her hair shorn to raise cash for the Beatson Cancer Charity and already has raised £800.

Her cheering workmates at the CDC4 chilled distribution depot in New Bankside Industrial Estate, Falkirk, watched as hairdresser Emma Burns (19) from Headz salon in Polmont transformed the transport manager’s look.

General manager David Wilson was handed the scissors on Tuesday lunchtime to make the first cut in Kelly’s dark locks before Emma did her work with the clippers.

Afterwards she said: “It’s going to take a few days to get used to it and I might need a hat, but I wanted to do something for the Beatson as it’s such a worthwhile cause.

“I’ve a friend currently receiving treatment there for leukaemia and my aunt and grandpa have both been treated in the unit. There can’t be a family that hasn’t been affected by cancer and my hair will grow back.”

Kelly, of Glasgow, has only worked at CDC4 since last 
October but has been delighted by everyone’s support.

Also having her head shaved for charity recently was Myra Dalby (52), of Lumley Street, Grangemouth.

She has raised around £330 to date for Macmillan Cancer Research after her niece Avril Binnie from Banknock Barbers took the clippers to her hair.

Myra said: “I was in a car accident a few years ago and have been left not fit enough to do a sponsored walk or jump out of a plane, so mentioned that I could get my head shaved.

“A friend being treated for breast cancer said ‘Oh really’ so after that I had to go through with it.”
