Granddaughter braves shave in memory of nan
by Tom Martin

A CROSBY granddaughter has braved the shave in memory of her nan who died last year of pancreatic cancer.

Leah Howarth, 27, chopped off her hair in order to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support and the Thornton-based Jospice.

The event was organised following the death of Better Weaver, aged 88, who had battled with cancer.

Leah said: “I was very close to my nan and in my mind this was something small I could do in memory of her. I had a target of £200 but I have already raised more than £100 which is great.

”The money is going to really good causes. I remember when my nan was alive Macmillan were really helpful and we spoke to them on the phone. I would advise anyone else going through a similar situation to get in touch with them.

“The Jospice was also very helpful when my nan was there and always made her comfortable and offered emotional support.

”I would also like to thank Ian Scott Hairdressing in Crosby Village for shaving off my hair as they have been very supportive“.
