A Royston barista said having her long hair shaved off for charity was both ‘scary and amazing’ after she went under the razor as part of Brave the Shave month.
Laura Horsley took part in the Macmillan event at her work in Costa Coffee at Tesco Extra to show support for her cancer suffering grandfather Ben.
She said: “It was so scary but the turn out was amazing and so was the support.
“My 18 month old daughter Lexi was my biggest worry but she loves it and I must admit – it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be.”
Laura has so far raised almost £1,000 for the charity, but you can still donate by searching for Laura Horsley on the Brave the Shave website.
Another Royston fundraising champ who had her locks chopped off for charity over the bank holiday weekend is nine-year-old Bethany Curtis-Copeland.
She used to sport hair so long she could sit on it, but donated her long hair to the Little Princess Trust who make wigs for children with cancer after having it cut to a shoulder length bob at Carlo and Co on Saturday.
