A MUM-of-two rose to a hair-raising challenge on August 30 by getting her locks cut for charity.

Sadie Sherran, from Knutsford, had 14in chopped off her hair on Saturday, which she has donated to the Little Princess Trust, a charity that makes wigs for children who have lost their hair through cancer treatment.

The 32-year-old also braved the chop to raise money for Cancer Research and smashed her £250 target by raising more than £430.

“My friends had mixed feelings about me cutting my hair so I gave them the challenge that the more money I raised, the more inches I could cut,” she said.

“It feels good knowing it will be made into a wig for a little girl or boy going through chemotherapy and I hope it helps them feel better about themselves.

“I felt I would cry cutting all my hair and that was through choice, with a hairdresser at hand, it must be devastating losing your hair to chemotherapy, losing your hair on top of battling cancer.”

Sadie thanked her family and friends, as well as her hairdresser Milly Evans, for their ‘overwhelming’ support and generous donations.
