Barnolswick pensioner sees red in bid to help Bosom Friends
9:00am Saturday 10th August 2013 in News
Grey-haired pensioner Joan Shaw will be giving her friends a shock after dyeing her hair bright red.
Speaking after having her hair done last week Joan said: “It’s very bright.
“It’s certainly a bit different but it’s all for a good cause.
“It took around three and a half hours to do in total.
“I will be out and about in the town so it will be a shock for some of my friends.”
Joan has been a volunteer with Bosom Friends for a number of years and said she wished they had been around when her husband, Bert, died from cancer 17 years ago.
She said: “I would have loved someone to talk to at the time and I know the monthly support group that Bosom Friends started this year is much appreciated. But both charities do such a lot of good work, it is good to support them.”
