A quadriplegic woman who suffers cerebal palsy has smashed a fund raising target to bring in £1,300 to have her hair cut off to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
Bex Penney, 30, decided she wanted to help after seeing people she knows die of cancer.
Her mum Amanda Marriott said: “She has already done things like making key rings to raise funds. She began this idea with the hope of raising £1,000 and already she has smashed it.”
Bex has been growing her hair for about four years but is braving the chop in a bid to make as much as possible for the cancer charity.
Cutting it will be Stacy from The Loft salon in March Market Place.

“There’s very little she can do to raise money so this seemed the perfect idea,” said Amanda.
Bex will lose her locks on Thursday (14) at at the West End home where she spends half her time with her parents and the other half in a supported living bungalow in Kent.
