Claire Williams, 36, and her 10-year-old daughter Codi, who live in Barnfield Road, both had their hair cut to raise money for Isabel Hospice. The hair was then donated to the Little Princess Trust, where it will be used to make wigs for children who lost their hair during cancer treatment.

Claire said: “We chose this charity as it’s one close to our hearts. Last year, we lost my aunty Linda to cancer. With the support of Isabel hospice she was able to spend her final days at home surrounded by family instead of in the hospital.

“I’d been growing my hair for my wedding in May this year, and had it trimmed, but not really cut in the last two years, Codi always had long hair so this is a change for us both.”
