An Ely optician raised more than £100 for charity by “doing some a bit different” and dying her hair blue.
Dani Moore, who works at Scrivens Opticians & Hearing Care, decided to support the Alzheimer's Society by changing the colour of her locks during Dementia Action Week.
Thanks to trainee dispensing optician Dani's eye-catching new look, a book sale and a raffle, the Buttermarket branch raised £122 in sponsorship and donations for the cause.
Dani said: "Alzheimer's Society is our company's charity of the year and one that is close to our hearts because it affects so many families.
"I wanted to do something a bit different and it got a good response."
