A 17 year-old from March had her head shaved yesterday in a bid to raise £1,000 for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.

It is a charity close to Phoebe Dudley’s heart - her older sister Laura had a life-changing 14 hour operation there 20 years ago.

She said: “This is where my sister went when she had cancer so to show my appreciation I’m trying to raise £1,000 for the children and their families to make their time at the hospital a little easier.”

Phoebe has donated her hair to the Little Princess Trust, who provide real-hair wigs to boys and girls that have lost their own hair through cancer treatment.

You can still donate at or at Mill Hill Garage on Wimblington Road and Elite Hair Studio on Elwyn Road.
