A woman from Deddington has bravely had her head shaved in memory of a close friend.

Jane Jeffels decided to brave both the shave and the winter weather to raise money and awareness for the charity CALM - Campaign Against Living Miserably.

Her good friend, Andy Tracey, passed away in October of this year so on December 3 she had the chop.

Jane said: “My mates thought I was crazy getting it all cut off in this weather.”

The charity is dedicated to preventing male suicide, the single biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK. In 2015, 75% of all UK suicides were male.

Jane’s extreme cut was performed by local barber Steve Miller of Deddington.

She said: “I would like to say thanks to Steve Miller hairdresser and everyone else who supported me.”
