The siblings of a cancer patient have shaved their heads in support of their sister.

Karen Doling, 40, of Warwick Close, Chippenham was diagnosed with breast cancer last month and has started chemotherapy.

She said: “I am going to lose my hair anyway but Roger and Jo said they would get their heads shaved too. We’re doing it for the Dorothy House Hospice as I may need their help and support one day.”

Roger May, from Reading, and Jo May, from Chesham, London, joined Mrs Doling to have their heads shaved in Sainsbury’s, where Mrs Doling has worked in the bakery for two years.

They have so far raised £2,220 for Dorothy House Hospice Care, which provides free specialist nursing care at home for people with life-threatening illness in Bath, Wiltshire and Somerset.
