Two members of staff at an opticians in Bury St Edmunds have pledged to have their heads shaved in aid of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Up until October 25, staff at the Buttermarket Specsavers will be hosting fun-packed days of activities to raise money for the cause.

It will culminate on October 25 with store directors Marc Mitchell and Conor McKenny having the clippers taken to their locks.

Mr Mitchell said: “Somehow I have been roped into having my hair shaved off on the final day of our fund-raising month, but as it’s for such a great cause I am more than happy to take part.

“There will be plenty of exciting activities taking place throughout October with face painting, fancy dress days and colouring competitions for children to take part in. The team will also be wearing a variety of pink outfits to help encourage donations.”

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an annual campaign taking place in October to increase awareness of breast cancer and remind women to be breast aware.
