Suzi Griffiths loses her locks for charity.

A COUPLE of bald-headed women nurses are doing the rounds at Musgrove Park Hospital.

Senior staff nurse Suzi Griffiths had her head shaved at the Beacon Centre cancer unit’s Christmas ball.

And her colleague, Kate Welstead, followed suit and had her locks chopped off during a ward meeting.

They carried out the stunt in support of a workmate who has started chemotherapy after being diagnosed with breast cancer.

Suzi raised £265 at the ball for Against Breast Cancer and colleagues have pledged a further £500.
