A hairdresser said goodbye to her beloved locks to raise about £1,500 for her four-year-old next door neighbour.

Shelley Harris, of Birch Road, Cantley, had her head shaved in Salon 51, where she works as a stylist, to raise funds for little Mae Fox.

Mae, who has spastic quadriplegia cerebral palsy, needs £70,000 to pay for an operation in America to make her legs work. At the moment, she relies on a wheelchair or frame to get around.

Shelley, 34, said: “She means a lot to me and I see her all the time. She’s got a heart of gold and so much determination.

“I just wanted to raise as much money as I could for her - I want to see her walk into my house rather than be wheeled or carried in. It upsets me when you see that she really wants to do it but her legs won’t let her.”

Shelley’s cropped hair was given a ‘number one’ all over by her boss and salon owner Ron Froggatt.

“I was shaking like mad,” said Shelley.

“Mae was there when I had it d0ne and she touched my scalp afterwards and said that she wanted hers doing too!”
