TWO Wrexham women have raised more than £1,000 for charity to show their support following a family member's diagnosis.

Maureen Roberts, 64 and Joany Foulkes, 65, from Cefn Mawr decided to take the plunge and 'brave the shave' to raise money for those affected by cancer.

Ms Roberts' daughter, Viviene Moore, 36, of Cefn Mawr said: "My mum normally does a cake bake every year but this year her and her sister-in-law decided to brave the shave as my dad has been told he has cancer.

"We've also had quite a few family members pass away from cancer.

"It was done in the Holly Bush Inn in Cefn Mawr and a local band called The Fractions gave their time for free to help more people come.

"We had a bit of a fundraising day."

So far Ms Roberts and Ms Foulkes have raised over £1,200 for Macmillan Cancer Support with more money still coming in to recognise their brave act.
