Jen Harper organised the Poppy Appeal fundraiser with her team at Harpers Hair, including senior stylist Julie Turner, on Friday.

On the day, men could get their hair cut for a donation to the Poppy Appeal – something that was taken up by Crow photographer Danny Loo.

The team – who dressed up as landgirls for the day – also offered cakes for a donation.

Julie told the Crow: “We have collected £267.71 in donations from the wonderful locals in Bassingbourn.
