Askam woman raises £627.50 for charity after having her hair chopped off

A 31-year-old Askam woman has raised £627.50after having her beautiful long hair chopped of to help children battling cancer.

Heather Teeley put her crowning glory to good use hoping to raise enough money to pay for just one wig for a poorly youngster and help them regain their confidence.

The young mum, who works for  Playdale Playgrounds in Haverthwaite, had her locks chopped on February  23.

The hair has been donated to The Little Princess Trust along with the £627.50 raised.

She said: “I thought we were only going to manage to get 9 inches of hair, but we managed to cut of 14 inches! Almost double what I thought we would be able to do.

“I just want to say a MASSIVE thank you to each and every person that has been so amazingly kind and sponsored me and to Lizziee Shaw at Barrow’s Coco for doing the honours of cutting it off and giving me a brand new hair style.

“With all the sponsor money on my Just Giving Page and including sponsor forms we have raised over £600 which is unbelievable.

“People’s generosity has blown me away it really is incredible. This will all go towards making a special wig for a child in need.

“Again, thank you all so much.”
