Nineteen-year-old Claire Wilde had her head shaved at The Atrium Club today. Her locks will be donated to the Little Princess Trust, who provide wigs and hair pieces for children who suffer hair loss due to cancer treatment.

Claire’s efforts have so far raised £220.

She said: “It was a really hot day at the end of June and I said jokingly to a friend I wish I didn’t have hair because it was so hot, it was horrible.

“I had quite long, curly hair and my friend said I should shave it off. I said no way but I thought about it and actually I decided I could do it for charity.”
