Jude Rouse and Celia Petersen, Beth’s colleagues from the Mediterranean Shipping Company, braved the shave to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

“Beth is such an amazing and wonderful person who has remained positive and inspirational throughout everything. Shaving our heads is easy and will start to grow back straight away, however the impact the money we have raised, will last far longer,” said Jude and Celia.

Beth’s new fund raising total is nearly £8000, but she doesn’t want to stop there.

“I need to think of a new challenge to bring more money in!,” said Beth.

There are now 24 people in Club Baldy including many of Beth’s friends and family as well as 12-year-old Rory Gillespie - Gardiner who wanted to follow his stepfather’s example. Beth’s brother David was the first to join her.
