A family who collectively cut more than five feet of hair from their heads for charity, have raised more than £3,000.
George and Priya, who adopted Gorleston as their home 12 years ago, have presented a cheque for £3,3387.50 to the Louise Hamilton Centre, along with their children Asin, Michelle and Hannah.
The whole family decided to cut hair from their heads for the Little Princess Trust, while at the same time fundraising for cancer support centre the Louise Hamilton Centre.
Both parents work at the James Paget University Hospital and were delighted to be able to raise so much money.
George said: 'So many people have supported us - we've had messages of support from five continents. We want to thank everybody who has helps us with this.
