A Honiton woman has raised more than £1,000 for two charities by shaving her head.

Kathy Layzell faced the clippers to support Honiton’s Kings House day hospice and African relief charity Send-A-Cow.

She also undertook the head shave in memory of her late father, Ken Farmer, raising a grand total of £1,154. Of the total, £180 was raised from collecting money in Honiton and Axminster on a couple of Saturdays.

Kathy said: “I would like to thank everyone who donated.

“It was lovely to chat to so many friendly people in the street, locals and visitors, who had heart-rending stories to tell. I am extremely pleased with the amount made and I know my dad would have been too.”
