A VETS staff member is braving the shave to raise cash for two animal charities.

Anne Hardisty is taking part in a sponsored head shave on August 19 at 1pm at her workplace, MacArthur Barstow and Gibbs in Webbs at Wychbold.

Ms Hardisty will split money raised between two animal charities.

The first charity she has chosen is A1 Petline, a charity which offers help and advice to animals and pet owners regarding animal welfare and education

Animal Saviours, a local charity which sponsors organisations to assist in better animal welfare, will also benefit from the cash.
