A woman had her head shaved as a successful fund-raiser was held in Kessingland in aid of Sarcoma UK.
Vikki Daniel was raising money in memory of her step mother Hilary Daniel – who died of a rare cancer at the age of 60 – back in March of last year.
At the event, held at Kessingland St Edmund's Church Hall on Saturday, June 25, people gathered to support the family – including Mrs Daniel's widower David.
Visitors to the event also enjoyed face painting and a bouncy castle – with the funds going towards Sarcoma UK – which supports people with the disease that claimed Mrs Daniel's life.
Vikki, who had the logo of the charity shaved into the back of her head at the event, said: 'She was an amazing person who was always full of life and lived for every moment, so I wanted to make her proud and raise money and awareness for this great charity.
