UPBEAT cancer patient Vicky Martin said she'd had her head shaved because she was about to lose it anyway during treatment.

Fitness instructor Miss Martin, 37, and her friend and fellow bootcamp boss Julie Whiting, 40, both had their hair cut and then shaved to crew cut length to raise money for Maggie's Centres that help cancer sufferers.

Egged on by a 100-strong crowd, the sponsored head shaves at The Stirrup Cup, Miss Martin's local pub in Bisley, raised £4,500.

"It went well. It was brilliant. I am so chuffed," said Miss Martin who is battling breast cancer for the third time.
