It was a close shave for one of Overgate’s shop managers who decided it was off with her hair in order to raise much needed cash.

Elaine Wright who works at the shop in King Cross shaved off her hair to raise money for the Elland hospice.

Laura Golding, fundraising and retail manager, said: “Elaine managed to raise more than £400 and people were stopping in the street in their cars to give her money. It was fantastic.”

Elaine said she would shave off her hair every day if it meant helping those in need at Overgate.

The Halifax store is also having their own design day weekend selling clothes and accessories, all designer, today and tomorrow.
