Pam Hudson and Becky White had their hair cut infront of all of the school children, staff and parents during a celebration assembly.

Pam and Becky’s chopped locks have been donated to the Little Princess Trust.

The charity will use the hair to make wigs, helping children and young adults who have lost their own hair due to cancer treatments.

The shearing was carried out by Jenny Bone, headteacher, and Georgina Clark, a teaching assistant who is having her own battle with breast cancer.
