Isle of Wight colleague Sam has hair shaved for charity before she starts chemo treatment

August 09, 2021

Our courageous colleague Sam, who's currently being treated for breast cancer, wanted to do something positive before she risked losing her hair due to chemotherapy so she had her hair shaved off and donated it to The Little Princess Trust.

Sam, who works at our Isle of Wight store, was joined by home shop manager Leo, who also had his head shaved, and fresh colleague Shaun, who had his beard shaved off for the first time in seven years, raising £440 for Breast Cancer Now, £375 for Macmillan and £200 for Tickled Pink. Our store's community champion Clare, who presented chilled department colleague Sam with flowers and a Kindle to help keep her occupied during her treatment, said: "I am incredibly proud of all of them, but especially Sam who is a remarkable lady and we all wish her well."
