Stephanie Harness freely admits her hair is “her pride and joy.”
Not any more, though.
She had the whole lot shaved off last Sunday - but for a very good cause.
Stephanie is just one of the many people involved in fundraising efforts for Susan Ashmore-Holdsworth.
As a former landlady of the Black Horse pub in Coningsby’s High Street, Susan is a well know figure.
However, she has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
Susan is hoping to undergo a ‘NanoKnife’ operation - a pioneering new treatment for cancer sufferers - which is not available on the NHS.
Several fundraising activities have been planned, including Stephanie’s head shave which took place at the Black Horse.
Stephanie, 27, said: “I think it’s fair to say my hair is my pride and joy and I’ll be lost without it.
“But when you think what Sue is going through, it’s the least I can do.
“She is a battler. She’s a wonderful person and a great friend to a lot of people.
“We all just want her to get better and hopefully, the ‘NanoKnife’ treatment will be a big help.”
Other fundraising events include raffles and car boot sales.
Stephanie could certainly have done with her long hair this winter .
She has just left her job as a care worker to become a dairy farmer - cold mornings and all.
*Susan has set up a ‘Go Fund Me’ page and donations can also be made on Stephanie’s Facebook page.
