HAIRDRESSER Helen Richmond is a cut above when it comes to her own latest hairstyle.

The mum-of-two had hairdresser friend Clarissa Bolton, of Longridge’s The Salon, cut her lovely long locks and then shave her head to match dad Jim Jackson, who lives with wife Margaret in Ribchester, and whose latest round of cancer treatment has left him bald.

Helen’s brave shave in The Old Oak pub in Longridge was cheered on by her hubby Matt, children Arthur, six, and three-year-old Violet, her brother and sister plus other family and friends, who sponsored her to raise an incredible £7,500 for charity Rosemere Cancer Foundation

Helen said: “My dad was diagnosed with bowel cancer five years ago and is still fighting his battle. Doctors, nurses and other staff at Rosemere Cancer Centre have been absolutely fantastic with him and I wanted to do something to raise lots of money for them so they can continue to help other families in the way they have helped mine.”
