A Welwyn Garden City hair salon in the town centre raised over £2k for Teenage Cancer Trust.
Katrina Rees, who works at Academy Hair and Beauty in Fretherne Road, had her hair shaved off in memory of Charlotte Loader, who passed away aged 23.
Charlotte’s auntie Jayne Beecroft, who owns the WGC salon, said friends and family have since raised over £210k for the charity and are aiming for £250k by February, which would have been Charlotte’s 30th birthday.
Following the latest fundrasier, Jayne told the WHT: “We had a fun evening and enjoyed cup cakes made by one of our clients Julia Alger – lemon and elderflower just like the royal wedding.
“There was also Pimm’s and nibbles, everyone had a go with the clippers – staff, clients and family – and Katrina looked as beautiful as ever inside and out.”
Teenage Cancer Trust is a cancer care and support charity in the UK that exists to improve the cancer experience of young people aged between 13 and 24.
