Mum-of-three loses her locks for charity

A MOTHER-of-three from Henley who lost her aunt to cancer has shaved her head for charity.

Paula Isaac, 35, of Gainsborough Road, had her long, brunette locks shaved off on Sunday to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

She was cheered on by family and friends at the Saracen’s Head pub in Greys Road, where her best friend Fozia Shafi did the honours.

She raised £1,138 through sponsorship and a raffle organised by the pub landlords Colin and Melanie Roberson. Mrs Isaac, a teaching assistant at Badgemore Primary School in Henley, wanted to raise money after a friend was recently diagnosed with cancer and in memory of her aunt Elaine who died after a battle with the disease in 2008.

She said: “My auntie was so inspirational and brave. I have done something for Cancer Research every year since she died. I normally do Race For Life but I was thinking about how I could raise money by doing something more extreme. Someone suggested shaving my head and I thought ‘well, I’m game’.”
