TWO young women cut off more than 12 inches of hair each to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness.
Lauren Lenihan, 18, and her friend Gabby Coles, 20, have so far raised more than £1,100 for the charity.
The Banwell youngsters gathered in front of a crowd at the Brewers Arms before having their long locks chopped for the cause.
Lauren said: “There was a really good turnout, we weren’t expecting so many people but they just kept coming and coming.
We got quite a few donations on the night which was really nice. Everyone was cheering, we felt really proud of ourselves.
“We were thinking about doing it for a while because we like to do things to help others, but we weren’t sure.
“When my auntie passed away of breast cancer it made me really determined.”
