Two kind-hearted local women have had their heads shaved to raise funds for causes which are close to their hearts.

Friends Laura Ritchie and Casey Clark had their hair chopped off at Kraken Tattoo Palour in Montrose by two hairdressers from Odyssee Hair Design in Johnshaven.

Laura made the decision to cut off all her hair as a way to raise money for and support her twin sister, Nicola, who is currently undergoing treatment for stomach cancer.

Laura had seven inches of her hair cut off and decided to donate her locks to The Little Princess Trust - a charity which provides real-hair wigs to boys and girls across the UK and Ireland that have sadly lost their own hair through cancer treatment.

The money Casey raised from shaving her head will be donated to the Armitstead Child Development Centre, within the Kings Cross Hospital Site in Dundee, which helped her in the past.

Hairdressers Kirstie Best and Lauren Anderson from Odyssee cut the women’s hair at the tattoo parlour on the High Street last Tuesday (January 13).
