Old friends in charity head shave
A PAIR of firm friends will be bidding goodbye to their hair at the weekend in a bid to raise money for a charity close to their hearts.
Susan Spry and Sally Oliver first met, aged 10, at the William Alvey school and have been great friends ever since.
On Saturday, Susan will have her head completely shaved while Sally sports a number two cut to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Sally, who is a residential care worker for children, was diagnosed with cervical cancer in early 2012.

She said: "I have had all the treatment, both radiotherapy and chemotherapy and we just felt like we needed to give something back.
"I had a key worker from Lincoln Hospital and she would come and support me. Nobody knew how bad it was and she was there all the time.
"She used to ring me up at home and if I had any worries I could just ring her. She was a vital help to me.
"Macmillan is such a worthwhile charity and cancer affects everyone in some way."
Susan, who works as a home care support worker for the elderly, turned 50 last week and Sally will also turn 50 at the end of November. They chose the milestone year to do something different.
The pair will have their hair cut off at Eclipse Hair salon in Bristol Arcade, Sleaford at 3pm on Saturday.
Sponsor forms are available at the salon for anyone wishing to give a donation and there will also be collections on the day to help boost funds.
Sally added: "Susan is excited as she is having a full head shave. I must admit I'm a little nervous but am determined to have it done. We are crazy though, it's going to be cold with no hair."
