Two sisters got a buzz out of their fundraising efforts.

Zandra Green and Jeanette Elliott had their hair cut off and head shaved to raise money for CLIC Sergent and The Little Princess Trust.

Zandra, 34, from Whitley Bay, had her hair cut into a short bob, donating her long hair to the Little Princess Trust.

And Jeanette, 33, from Walker, had her head shaved.

The fundraising challenge – which has raised more than £1,000 – took place at Bertie’s Club, in South Parade, Whitley Bay, to show support for nephew Daniel Green, 18, who also had his head shaved ahead of starting cancer treatment.

Zandra said: “We thought not only was this a nice way to support two charities but good for Daniel to see friends before starting treatment.”

Dee Tyler, fundraising manager, said: “I’d like to say a huge thank you to Zandra and her sister for joining our Big Buzz Campaign and becoming a ‘life-shavers’.

“Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is a fantastic chance to raise awareness of the impact of childhood cancer, and of CLIC Sargent’s work supporting young cancer patients and their families.”
