16 year old Leah Dean is making the ultimate hair sacrifice for her former English teacher, Michelle Holding, of the Albion Academy who is currently battling breast cancer at just 31 years of age. Leah is going to shave off her waist length locks to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

"Miss Holding was really open about her cancer and it got me thinking about raising money in her honour" says Leah "In March I raised £200 from the Pretty Muddy 5k run but I wanted to raise more. I decided on the head shave because it's a pretty big thing when girls do it. I'll be a bit cold for a bit...

"At first my friends thought I was a bit mad but I got a good response from the school, with pupils I didn't even know coming up and giving me money and the teachers were on board too" she adds

Leah's dad, Joe, is also on board... "I was a bit emotional at first because she was going to lose all her hair but I've got used to it now; it's fine she can always wear a hat" he says "I try to make a joke of it and it's for a good cause..."

The sponsored head shave is going to be a public event at St Boniface's Social Club in Lower Broughton on Friday 3rd July, with a DJ, raffle and more.

Charity Head Shave
Friday 3rd July 7:30pm
St Boniface's Social Club, 250-252 Lower Broughton Road, Lower Broughton M7 2JX

Tickets available from the venue in advance £2.50

AFTER TWO DAY STRIKE HOSPITAL WORKERS WIN NHS PAY PARITY

"We stuck together and we won!" Vicky, cleaner at Royal Bolton Hospital

Bolton Royal Hospital workers are celebrating a massive victory after taking two days of strike action over pay parity earlier this month, supported by Salford UNISON and many other trade unionists.

The workers, who include cleaners, catering staff, porters and security staff, are employed by Bolton NHS Trust's subsidiary company iFM, doing the same jobs as other NHS workers but were offered pay at a lesser rate. Now they have won an increase in line with other NHS workers, backdated to last April.
