Customers crowded round to watch and donated generously, adding to the total raised by sponsorship from family and friends.

Jo Walsh, store manager of Wilko in Ely, said: “As Sheila works part time, she sometimes doesn’t get the chance to attend all our fundraising events – but she was really eager to support such as good cause, so she decided she would make one big contribution instead.

“She’s chuffed to bits with the response she’s got, we put a sign up on her till saying why she had her head shaved and she gets customers congratulating her and donating. I’d like to thank her for going to such lengths to raise money for our new charity of the year – it was well worth it.”

Mark Bishop, director of fundraising at Prostate Cancer UK, said: “Our thanks go to Sheila, and everyone at the Ely store for helping to raising funds for the charity. “
