Brooke Joyce wanted to brave the chop after seeing a little girl on television talking about missing her hair after losing it due to illness.

As a result she had her waist-length hair chopped off above her shoulders so the hair could be donated to the charity, which will use it to make wigs for cancer sufferers.

Brooke has also raised £200 on her JustGiving page, with donations from friends and family taking her to 750pc of her £20 target.

The haircut took place on Saturday, June 16 by Larissa Warnes, from Colour Me Crazy.
