Video and Picture Gallery: ‘Hair’-oic gesture from Nicole

A Market Rasen care home’s summer fair saw a close shave for one of its workers.

“My uncle has cancer and was supported by Macmillan, so I wanted to give something back,” said Nicole.

And there was plenty of support for Nicole as she lost her locks.

Extra money was raised by those wanting to make the first cuts of Nicole’s hair, which had been dyed purple for the occasion, before hairdresser Liz Atkins got down to business.

Family and friends gathered round to watched as Nicole lost her locks in 
the home garden.

“We are all so proud of her - and she looks great,it suits her” said her fellow carehome workers Tanya Fletcher, Tina Skelson, Chelsea Hildred and Laura Bradley.

“I was really nervous to start with, but it feels good now,” added Nicole, who hopes to have raised around £500 from sponsorship.

“Thank you to everyone who has supported me
