A teenager in Blyth has raised more than £800 for Macmillan by shaving her hair.
Eighteen-year-old Kathryn Forshaw had her locks chopped off to raise money for the cancer charity and donated her hair to the Little Princess Charity.
Kathryn said: “I was nervous to begin with, but once they cut off the first pony tail I was fine.
“I was doing it for a good cause and that helped me along.
“A close family friend died two years ago to the day I did it and so I was remembering her.”
The head shave, at The House of Marley in Blyth, was sponsored and Kathryn has so far raised more than £800.
She added: “When our friend Christine was poorly the Macmillan nurses came in and were great with her.
“I expected to be upset on the day but it was fine, and I quite like my new hair, although my ears are always cold now so I will have to invest in a hat.”
