A Sutton woman has shaved her hair off in remembrance of her friend and to raise money for charity.

Deborah Harrison, of Stanton Hill, said she took part in the charity head shave for a school friend who died of liver cancer.

While Ms Harrison went under the clippers, her son Jordan (14) raised £90 selling cakes and biscuits with his friends at the charity open day at their house.

Ms Harrison said: “I would like to thank Jordan, he did really well.

He cooked all the cakes himself and I am proud of him.

“The success of the open day is mostly down to my son.

“I also want to thank my friend Becky Colton who shaved my hair for me and everyone who attended and gave generously.”

The Sutton mum has raised £310 in total for Macmillan Cancer Care and hopes to raise more money for the charity soon.

She added: “The day went brilliantly and I am hoping to do more for charity but I am still thinking as to what that is yet.

“My hair feels very different but it is starting to grow back now and it is a bit spiky.”

Ms Harrison works as a qualified nurse at a home in Derby.

More than 98 per cent of Macmillan Cancer Care’s income in 2012 came from voluntary donations and fundraising.
