BANK worker Audrey McDaid has gone from baking cakes to shaving off her hair to raise money for Macmillian cancer support.

Audrey, 57, normally whips up a load of tasty treats in the kitchen for her colleagues to sample at Sainsbury’s Bank in Rosyth, in aid of the charity’s coffee morning, but this time she decided on something a little different.

She braved the shave last month and raised £2,080 for the cause.

She told the Press: “Every year, I do the Macmillian coffee morning, actually I spend most of the month baking!

“We always raise a few hundred pounds but this time I thought I’d do a bit more. I set up a fundraising page and was over the moon to see everybody donating.

“Douglas Barr (owner of Sheds in Dunfermline) also offered the use of his salon on the day so we had a bit of a party!

“There wasn’t a particularly personal reason why I did it but everybody has got someone that has been touched by cancer.”

Audrey added: “I’m quite feminine and always make sure I have my hair done and lipstick on but that is why I wanted to do it.

“As a woman, hair is a big part of who you are but I had to tell myself it is just hair. It’s still taking some getting used to though!

“When I saw there was a photographer there at Sheds I was taken by surprise but if it creates awareness then that’s great.”
