“Some ladies came in pyjamas and heels, some came dressed to the nines; what matters is, they all came to the event to support local people affected by cancer and its treatments,” said Karen McMeekan from 1 in 3.

Seven local businesses gave their support the event, providing hair, make-up, nail and beauty treatments.

A total of £1110 was raised on the night, boosted further by a donation of £1000 from Joymount Arms owner, Jack Creighton. Proceeds from a sponsored head shave by Nicola Walker will also go towards the charity.
