A BROMSGROVE mum and her teenage daughter have raised more than £1,200 for Cancer Research UK from shaving off their beautiful locks.

Lily Fullelove, 13, first came up with the ‘hair-razing’ plan after she witnessed several family members battle the disease.

Her mum, Cherie, was so impressed she decided to volunteer for the headshave too.

It took place outside the Cancer Research UK shop on Bromsgrove High Street last week.

The duo originally aimed to raise £200 so when they beat their target six times over they were overjoyed.

Lily has now donated her hair to The Little Princess Trust which provides real-hair wigs for children going through cancer treatment.

She said: “Everywhere I look someone has been touched by cancer - it is the worst thing I can think of and no-one should have to go through it.

“My own family has been affected but every little bit donated to research can help to save us all.”

Karen Marshall, assistant manager of the Cancer Research shop, said: “We’d like to thank Lily and her mum for taking on this brave challenge for Cancer Research UK.”

To sponsor Lily and her mum visit or for more about Cancer Research UK call 08701 602040.
