A brave Sheffield woman has gone from blonde to bald to raise cash for a good cause.

Paula Staniland raised nearly £3,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support by having her blonde locks shaved off to a number one.

The 29-year-old, of Malin Bridge, had the big chop in front of dozens of colleagues at Lloyds Banking Group’s contact centre on Furnival Road.

Paula said: “A lot of people having cancer treatment lose their hair not by choice so I was happy to do it for them.

“At work we tend to do bake sales or dress down days but I wanted to raise more money and more awareness, which is why I went for the head shave.

“There were at least 50 people watching and I think that was more nerve-racking than having a bald head at the end of it!”

“It’s very different because I have gone from white blonde to bald but I’m getting used to it and a lot of people have said I can pull it off.”
