Wigan mum enjoys her new look after shaving off her hair for charity

It was a case of hair today, gone tomorrow for a Wigan mum who decided to “brave the shave”

Tuesday, 3rd August 2021, 4:55 am

Shauni Turner, 28, had her long, flowing locks cropped at The Hawk pub, in Hawkley Hall, where she works as a supervisor.

She wanted to go under the clippers to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support

Shauni, who lives in Beech Hill, said: “I braved the shave for Macmillan to raise money for them to help people with cancer and their families. I did it because we have had people in our family go through cancer and I wanted to help raise some money for them, because of lockdown and not being able to raise much money themselves.”
