A plucky chef is swapping her knife for a pair of hairdressing scissors as she prepares to chop off her long locks for charity.
Tracey Armstrong, from Hopton, is having her 18-inch ponytail lopped off in aid of Breast Cancer Care and then snipping her hair back to the shortest it has ever been.
The 27-year-old was spurred into doing something for charity after a close friend was diagnosed with breast cancer.
She is hoping to raise £300 for the charity and she will also be donating her locks to the Little Princess Trust, which provides real-hair wigs to boys and girls across the UK and Ireland that have lost their hair through cancer treatment.
Miss Armstrong, who works at Potters Leisure Resort, said she would be left with around an inch of her locks after the hair raising stunt, but she was not worried about going short.

'My hair tends to get long and then I tend to cut it all off, but this time it's for a really good cause,' she added.
'I think it's going to feel really weird when it gets taken off but it will be a lot easier in the kitchen.'
