IT WAS a family affair as husband and wife, Claire and Hugh Dinsdale, braved the shave in aid of Breast Cancer Care and Prostate Cancer UK last week.

The couple are the supporting the cause after losing a family friend and colleague to cancer, and thought it would be unique to do a double shave.

Claire, 43, said: "It was our choice to have our heads shaved, other people don't get that choice."

They hosted a quiz night following the shave and raised £406.

Claire and Hugh's daughter, Ellen Dinsdale, 11, said: "It's interesting seeing mum and dad walk around the house bald.

"Watching them get their head shaved was scary but it's for a good cause."

The couple are also walking 26.2 miles overnight in London in July as part of Walk the Night - United against Cancer, and those interested can sponsor them at

They are also hosting an evening at Newclose Cricket Club on Friday, April 20 where you can pretend you're at the races with an evening of friendly betting and good food.

The event starts at 7pm and tickets must be booked in advance from Claire on 07875344550 or
