Coral Cranwell allowed the clippers to be taken to her locks and had it all chopped off to raise the funds.

She said: “Cancer affects so many people and can have devastating effects.

“My life has been touched by this disease a few times so I thought I would try to contribute something to this cause, in this awesome way.

“There’s something super exciting about shaving your head when you’re a girl, not the norm.

“I will be shaving my hair off with clippers, not with a razor. Not sure about a shiny head!”

The event was held at the Ivy Leaf Club in Whittlesey where there was also a disco plus a large raffle with prizes donated by local shops and people.
