Two sisters from Norfolk have had more than half their hair chopped off to help raise much-needed funds for a children's charity.

What started out as a New Year's resolution, quickly blossomed for Natalie and Liza Warboys.

The sisters, originally from north Norfolk, decided that instead of losing weight or giving up chocolate this year, they would donate their hair to charity and raise enough money to have it turned into wigs.

Liza, 25, of Cromer, is an auxiliary nurse. She said: 'Our family has been really, really supportive. We are just so happy we can give young children a much-needed wig.'

Natalie, 22, who now lives near Norwich and works as a trainee accountant, added: 'We originally set our target at £350, which would have been enough to make one wig. Our total has gone above and beyond that and we've now raised enough to make two wigs - one each!

'Although we were anxious, it out-weighed what we are doing to help the children.'

The duo went for the chop in Toni and Guy on London Street in Norwich city centre. The salon's art director donated his time to cut and style the sisters' hair for them.
