A Newmarket supermarket worker cut off her prized ponytail in support of a children’s cancer charity earlier this month.
Waitrose delivery shopper Natalie Webb, 22, lopped 17 inches off her hair and donated the locks to Little Princess Trust, a charity that makes wigs for children who have lost their hair after cancer treatment.
Hairdresser Sharon Bridgeman, from House of Diva on Exning Road, visited the store to cut Natalie’s hair in front of watchful store staff.
“I am really pleased with how it’s gone, I like my short hair and I’m pleased that my ponytail can be put to good use, making wigs for children who have lost their hair through illness,” said Natalie.
“I set myself a target of £350 for my fundraising as that is the average cost to the charity for one wig. Everyone has been really generous and I have managed to raise over £500, which is brilliant.”
