Lynne braved the shave for little princesses

she donated her hair and raised £1196 for Macmillan

In today's society, women are caught up in all kinds of pressures - with self image being pretty high up on the list.

But what happens if you're one of those women and lose all your hair? And even more difficult to imagine is, what if you're a little girl and lose all your hair?

Lynne Marton from our J McGuire funeral home knows the devastation that cancer brings, after losing her aunt to the condition this year, and a much respected colleague and friend to it last year.

She wanted to do something. Something where she could at least attempt to put herself in the shoes of someone who's battling and recovering from the disease, while making a difference at the same time.

She bravely decided to raise money by joining the Macmillan #BravetheShave campaign - getting her husband and son to shave off her shoulder length locks.

She was pretty nervous beforehand, and ever the professional, she gave the families in her care the heads up about what she was doing, so there were no surprises when she attended a funeral the following week.

The family, as well as her colleagues and local community were hugely supportive and generous, and she managed to raise an incredible £1196 for Macmillan.

Not only this, but the hair she's lost has been gained by another as she donated it the Little Princess Trust, who are a charity that make wigs for little girls who need it, to make them feel beautiful again.

We think you look amazing Lynne and definitely pull it off, and we're so pleased to see that you've done such a good deed with such a big smile on your face!
