Her hair has been donated to The Little Princess Trust to be made into wigs for children, and the money raised will be split evenly between Great Ormond Street Hospital and RSPCA Leeds branch.

The 25-year-old said: “The shave went fantastically! Over 100 people came out to support at work, and my boyfriend and Dad were there too.

“Raised £2,087 in total, which I just think is fabulous. Over a grand for both charities!”
