TWO SISTERS of a patient showed their support for her by shaving their heads to raise money for the cancer ward at Eastbourne District General Hospital.

Judy White, from Lewes, and Pauline Lane, from Polegate, had a close shave for cancer patient Barbara Mann and raised £1,800 for Pevensey Ward.

Pauline said: “Whilst Barbara was undergoing treatment we wanted to show our support for her who we love so much.

“One of her fears was losing her hair and how this would affect her. So we vowed if it happened she wouldn’t go it alone and we both shaved off our hair to match.”

Judy White said: “My daughter Donna shaved our heads. We were completely bald. I would like to thank everyone who gave so generously, particularly to Debbie Alldridge who raised over £400.”
