A Chelmsford College student shaved off her locks and raised more than £2,000 for Cancer Research UK.
Health and social care level three apprentice Jodie Guyver took the bold chop after witnessing her close friend, Rebecca James, suffer with cancer as a teenager.
After hearing the news that Rebecca had been given the all clear, Jodie was determined to do more for others and chose the hairdressers as the perfect opportunity to raise money.
The 17-year-old said: “I am overwhelmed with the response from friends, family and all those that kindly donated and showed up here today to give their support.
“The charity is one that is close to my heart and hopefully we can make a difference to other cancer sufferers. I’m getting used to my new hair, or lack of.”
