A teenager who tragically lost her grandmother to ovarian cancer two years ago will shave her head to raise funds in her memory.
Molly Carter (13) who lives in Grimston and attends Catmose College in Oakham is hoping to raise around £1,000 by having her dark brown hair shaved off in the stocks on Grimston village green from 11m on Saturday, November 21.
This will be the first time that Molly has ever cut her hair except for the odd trim.
Molly is raising cash for Cancer Research UK and plans to donate her long locks to the Little Princess Trust, a charity that provide real hairwigs, free of charge to boys and girls across the UK and Ireland that have lost their own hair through cancer treatment.
She said: “I can’t wait to cut my hair off, I think that it will be really liberating and might even inspire people to do the same.”
“I’m also a little bit nervous about having to do it infront of a big audience.
“So far I’ve managed to raise around £940 so my target is to hit £1,000.”
