Georgina Tetley-Paul has gone temporarily bald for the Fire Fighters Charity which, as with many charities, is facing financial uncertainty.
Her wife, Alice, was given the role of handling the razor on Friday.
The Fire Fighters Charity provides facilities and services to firefighting personnel who have been traumatised psychologically or physically be the job they do and the horrors they have seen.
It has three state-of-the-art centres around the country.
Georgina said: “I’ve been truly overwhelmed by people’s generosity, kindness and support. It’s heart-warming to see our community pulling together in a time of adversity. It makes me proud to be part of it and despite my initial apprehension, I’m pleased that I decided to go bald for this important cause.”
Georgina has been a retained member of Alnwick fire crew for a year.
