A quadriplegic woman who suffers cerebal palsy underwent the chop in the name of charity.
Bex Penney, 30, had her long locks cut ‘super short’ to raise cash for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
She decided she wanted to do something for the charity after seeing people she knows die of the disease.
And she has already smashed her fundraising target with over £1,300 in donation, but she is hoping that having her the chop will encourage more people to sponsor her.
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 had grown her hair for about four years but braved the scissors in a bid to make as much as possible for the cancer charity.
Doing the Cutting was Stacy from The Loft salon in March Market Place, who wielded the scissors at Bex’s home in West End, March where she spends half her time with her parents and the other half in a supported living bungalow in Kent.

Amanda said: “There’s very little she can do to raise money so this seemed the perfect idea.”
