IT’S been a close shave for Ellie Thompson as she supports a friend with cancer.

The 49-year-old Langford Village, Bicester, resident had her head shaved to raise cash for Maggie’s cancer care centre at Oxford’s Churchill Hospital.

The Oxford Times:

Almost there...

The charitable effort was in support of friend Dorothy Thomas, who is battling breast cancer.

Ms Thompson, who works with Ms Thomas at Langford Village School, said: “We have so far raised £1,800 in two weeks which is quite overwhelming.”

The forest school leader said: “I don’t like the feel of it, it is quite cold, but supporting my friend has been lovely and it has given her a focus as well. It has made something fun out of being unwell.”

The Oxford Times:

Looking good

Maggie’s Oxford offers practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their families.

Thank you to everyone that has supported me and Dorothy by giving so generously to Maggie's Cancer Care Centre in Oxford. We have had huge support particularly from the Langford Village Community. It's amazing what everyone does to support each other in time of need or crisis. We certainly aren't just a Housing Estate in Bicester - we're a real community! To date I've raised £2000 - it's overwhelming and amazing. My JustGiving page is still open if anyone else would like to give to Maggie's http://www.justgivin
