Pair's Highbridge head shave fundraiser raises £500 for charity

Two charity fundraisers have lost their locks to raise hundreds of pounds for a good cause close to their hearts.

Suzie Gibbs from Burnham-On-Sea and Di Cornfield-Craven from Bridgwater held the charity head shave outside Highbridge's Asda supermarket on Saturday afternoon (July 11th).

"We're delighted to have raised a good sum for the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation after losing close friends over the past year," Suzie told "We've had great support for this from friends and family."

They raised £500 on the day and collections are ongoing at the checkouts. Their hair will also be donated to The Little Princess Trust, who make real hair wigs for children who lose theirs after cancer treatment.

The fundraiser was supported by members of Burnham Rotary Club, while the hairdressers were Scott Tippett and Jeanine Hulett.
