Two sisters from Doddington will brave the shave later this month to raise money for two charities that are close to their hearts.

Millie and Grace Groves will donate their hair to The Little Princess Trust as a thank-you after the charity helped one of their friends get a wig when she had cancer.

They are hoping to raise £300 and, for their sponsorship, they have chosen to split the money in half. Fifty per cent will go to Macmillan Cancer Support, who helped their nan in her final few months. The other half will be used to support a girlguiding project in the National Children’s Home in Jamaica.

The project includes the renovation of the children’s home and making sensory toys and learning materials for the children in the disability unit.

Millie and Grace, who have so far raised £170, will brave the shave on June 22.
