Maddiston woman shaves off hair for friend and Macmillan Cancer Support

A Maddiston woman has had her lengthy locks chopped off in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

Mary Reilly (40), known as Maz, braved the shave yesterday (Sunday) as a show of support to a close friend.

The Forgie Crescent resident is aiming to raise £500 and has donated her locks to the Little Princess Trust, which provides wigs to children with hair loss.
