Money raised from a charity head shave will go towards helping other children with retinoblastoma.

Georgie Oxendale’s mum Wendy, uncle Darren Porter and cousin Chris Porter are all preparing to lose their hair for Children With Cancer next month.

“We wanted to do something that would make people aware of what Georgie is going through and help others,” said Darren, from Churchill Avenue in Sudbury.

“Hopefully Georgie’s cancer has been caught in time.”

The 45-year-old said £170 had already been raised towards the cause.

The trio will lose their locks at HPL hairdressers in North Street on February 22 and will be joined by Georgie on the day.

“Georgie used to have lovely long hair before her treatment,” said Wendy. “As she has had to lose her hair, I will shave mine off.

“She thinks what we are doing is brilliant.”
