A SPONSORED head shave for Nelson cancer victim Shaylee Houghton has raised more than £500.
Family friend Jenni Rae Hollins had her hair cut off by students at Nelson and Colne College on Monday in aid of the cause - and students themselves rallied round to add £57 to the cause.
Jenni said afterwards she had found the experience “scary” and fund-raising group secretary Sharon Morgan thanked all who had contributed.
Five-year-old Shaylee began radiotherapy and chemotherapy last week and Sharon said she was “coping well”.
Other fund-raising efforts coming up are a cycle ride from Nelson to Leeds and back by sa grouip of local men, and another from Hull to Southport by a serving soldier.
