Hull City legend shaves head of Jewson employee

Becky Evans, from the Rotterdam Road branch of Jewson in Hull managed to raise £2,300 for the charity.

Her uncle, Stuart McCarthy, sadly passed away on Boxing Day 2013, after suffering from cancer. She decided to have her hair shaved off as a different way to raise money for the cause.

Rotterdam Road store manager, Chris Reader, praised Evans for her remarkable contribution: “She is very brave and we are all very proud of her. She is going abroad next month, so the fact she has done something like this before going on holiday is remarkable. To do what she has done to raise money for charity has to be commended.”

Evans said: “The response we had was amazing, so that’s why I decided to do it. We’ve now raised £2,300 for Macmillan and that number is still growing. I always said I’d rather shave my hair off before I ever jumped out of a plane, so that is why I chose it.”
