Bare-Faced Selfies continue to rake in the pennies for UK cancer charities.

And South Yorkshire hasn’t let the side down, as women across the region proudly bare their make-up free faces for the cause.

Jenny Denton, aged 31, of Barnsley, said: “I did it for one of my best friends, Stacy, who lost her battle with cancer a few years ago, but also to raise awareness, as many women and men forget to check their bits and early diagnosis is vital.

“Already eight million has been raised for research and treatment so far, which is amazing.

“It’s unbelievable how powerful social networking can be.”

Carol Slavin, 45, of Lowedges, sent us in her selfie, adding: “It may be hideous, but it’s for a fantastic cause.”

Izzy Hoedemaker, 22, of Barnsley, said: “I decided to bare my face for my friend’s brother, who not long since recovered from cancer. I think it’s a brill way of raising awareness and showing our support those those who are suffering - let’s find a cure for this cruel disease.”

Jane Lister shared her selfie on The Star’s Facebook page, saying: “It’s not pretty, but my best friend and a close family member have just battled through the effects of cancer, so showing my ugly mug is the least of my worries.”

Barnsley lass Jodie Noble, who runs Jodie Danielle Nails & Beauty in Barnsley, said: “I did it because I lost my nanna and grandad to cancer within nine weeks of each other and they were my everything. I just think if eight million pounds can be raised by doing something as simple as a quick post on Facebook, what else could be done to raise awareness about this awful disease? I just hope it helps people going through it or who have been through it.”

Gemma Malpass, also of Barnsley, told The Star: “I did it for my friends and family - for all those who have lost people they love and also to those who have survived. It’s amazing how something so simple can create such a big impact.”

Office workers from Wosskow Brown Solicitors, in Attercliffe, got on board too, with ladies ditching the slap for a day - and the men dolling up.

A spokesman for the firm said: “We all know someone affected by cancer. Here’s hoping that, in the years to come, death from cancer will be a thing of the past.”
