Keeley Jeffries has decided to help cancer patients twice over with her fund raising idea.
The 14-year-old from Brandon realised that by having her shoulder-length blonde hair shorn off she could raise money for the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK through sponsorship and donate the hair to be made into wigs for youngsters who have had chemo therapy.
She has been helped in her efforts by fellow West Ham supporter and award winning fund raiser, 11-year-old Jonjo Heuerman, from Kent, and will have her hair cut on May 4 at The Central pub near the team’s ground at Upton Park. Her parents have said they will buy her a woolly West Ham hat in the team shop afterwards.
Keeley, whose nan and grandad died of cancer, said: “These kids have got no hair and I thought it would be nice to donate my hair to make wigs for them.”
