A Clevedon woman has raised more than £2,000 for charity by shaving her hair off.
Jo Malpas, who lives in Hollyman Walk, decided to lose her locks in support of Weston Hospicecare after the death of the mother of one of her son’s friends.
As well as an online campaign, Jo held a well-attended event which included a raffle and cake sale at Clevedon Rugby Club, where she also underwent the shave with friend Rowena Hastings.
Although she set out with a target of £350, generous donors have seen the figure rocket to more than £2,000.
Jo said: “I was recently inspired by Amy Woodman who was such an inspirational lady to us all.
“I wanted to do something for Weston Hospicecare which does such amazing work caring for people in their time of need.”
