A hairdressing student has been inspired to shave her head for charity in honour of her grandmother’s ongoing battle with cancer.
Katie-Louise Smith, 19, who attends Derby College, Ilkeston, had her long locks cut off to raise money for Maggie’s Trust, a charity offering free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer.
She will also be donating her shaved locks to the Little Princess Trust who provide real hair wigs to boys and girls, who have suffered with cancer, across the UK.
Katie-Louise, pictured before and after, arranged the event to incorporate a raffle, cake sale and weigh-in of donated clothes. For a video of the head-shave visit www.ilkestonadvertiser.co.uk
