These long locks will be chopped off during a fund-raising event on Saturday at the Royal Queen pub in Belton Lane, Grantham.

Joanne Harrison will donate her hair to the Little Princess Trust, which provides wigs and hair pieces for children who suffer hair loss due to cancer treatment.

And that is not the only good cause to benefit from Saturday’s event – donations will also be collected for Clic Sargent, a charity which supports young people suffering from cancer.

There will be a raffle and tombola.

Readers may recognise Joanne, often seen behind the tills at B&M Bargains, in Grantham’s High Street.

The store has also backed her fund-raising quest, allowing her to put out collection buckets to raise even more cash.

Joanne’s hair will be cut to just below the collar at around 2pm.

The fund-raising event is open to everyone.
