Owner of Connelly’s Toy Shop shaves head for Macmillan

Published on: 26th April 2018

Pauline Connelly took part in Macmillan Cancer Support’s Brave the Shave event on Saturday morning.

L-R: Pauline before she braved the shave, and sporting her new look in Connelly’s Toy Shop.

Pauline took on the challenge in memory of her mother Eileen Connelly, who passed away from cancer in 2008 aged 72. She decided to mark her mother’s tenth anniversary with the fundraiser and was supported by family, friends and customers alike.

She had her brown hair shaved off in front of a crowd in the shop with many cheering her on. Pauline said she wanted to give something back to the charity, and that she was blown away by people’s generosity with donations both big and small.

Talking about the challenge and her new look, Pauline commented: “It went really well with a good crowd in the shop, and cakes, scones, juice and Prosecco. It only feels funny feeling the breeze above my ears.”

Pauline is still collecting donations but hopes to raise £1,000.
