A teenager who had her hair chopped for charity has raised more than three times her original target.

West Suffolk College pupil Jasmine Doe had her long blonde locks lopped in an effort to boost St Nicholas Hospice Care, while she donated her hair to the Little Princess Trust, which makes wigs for children who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment.

On April 8, Jasmine, 16, who underwent the chop at Moreton Hall Health and Fitness Club, in Mount Road, Bury St Edmunds, last month.

visited the Hospice to hand over £2,150.

She said: “St Nicholas Hospice Care is a charity close to our family and do such essential work providing end of life care.”

George Chilvers, St Nicholas Hospice Care Community Fundraiser, said: “I am so grateful to Jasmine for thinking of the Hospice in this way, and for everyone who supported her.

“This donation is much appreciated and will help the Hospice to continue to care for and support people facing long-term and life-threatening illnesses and their families.”
