Four brave women from the Horton General Hospital's radiology department had heir heads shaved for a former colleague battling cancer at a Bloxham salon yesterday (Tuesday, September 4).

Tracy Condon, Minal Oakes, Julie Weston-Green and Donna Tame have raised a total of around £2,500 for Macmillan Cancer Support, and counting.

Ex-radiographer Susie Marment, who has been diagnosed with cancer and left her job of 40 years last year, cheered the ladies on as hairdressers at Revamp Hair Salon gave them a number one all over.

"It's just amazing, I couldn't believe it when they said they were going to do it," Susie said.

"I worked for Macmillan for 25 years, I was chairman of the Banbury committee, and I never thought I would get cancer myself.

"So to see them doing it for Macmillan is unbelievable and that's what friendships are all about, they're the most wonderful friends."
