14-year-old Georgie Rosher lives in Kesgrave, Suffolk, with her mum Sue and her brother and sisters. She loves clothes and make up, and has beautiful long hair. But later this month she plans to lose that hair when she shaves her head for Big C.
Georgie's dad Paul lives in Norfolk, and his partner Bee died of cancer in June last year aged just 39. Georgie always felt she wanted to do something in her stepmother’s memory and came up with the idea of a head shave.
Rest assured all that hair won’t go to waste. Georgie will donate her hair to the Little Princess Trust – they use it to make wigs for children who have lost their hair through cancer treatment.
The task of shaving Georgie’s head will be taken on by Lydia of Just Hair salon in Woodbridge. Lydia's mother Penny died of cancer 20 years ago (also aged 39) so Lydia is very much involved in raising funds for cancer charities.
Come along and support Georgie at the Riverside Theatre and Restaurant in Woodbridge, Suffolk, on the 21st July 2014 at 16.30 (by kind courtesy of the owner Stuart Saunders).
