Locks lost for good cause...

A TODMORDEN woman has had her beloved dreadlocks shaved off for charity.

Teacher Sarah Terry said: “I’ve been thinking for a while that I needed to lose my dreads. I thought if people sponsored me it would mean I couldn’t back out.”

Hairdresser Maddy Donnellan cut Sarah’s hair and gave her a new, spikier look. Sarah chose Mencap because her best friend’s brother, Robbie Martin, has Down’s syndrome.

Sarah hopes to reach £1,000 and can still be sponsored by visiting http://www.justgiving.com/Sarah-Terry1.
