An Aberdeen cancer survivor has had her hair chopped off to raise funds for research into the disease.
Northfield community stalwart Jacqui Innes took part in Macmillan’s Brave the Shave campaign.
The great-grandmother of two, who works at the Northfield Community Centre, got the chop at the weekly centre disco.
She said: “I have lots of family and friends who have been affected by cancer and I wanted to help.
“I know some people do ‘Sober for October’ but I’ve been sober for a while now, and others do the run but I can’t really run – but I can sit in a chair and get my head shaved so I did that.”
Jacqui, 59, admitted that as a cancer survivor the event produced mixed emotions.
She said: “I suffered with ovarian cancer 30 years ago and so getting my head shaved will be both funny and emotional.”
Jacqui added: “I have already bought a hat.”
