A Leighton pub was packed out as a woman shaved off her dreadlocks to raise money for charity.

Katy Scrivener, of Leighton, hopes to make £1,000 for two charities, Unique and Ouch from her efforts on Saturday, August 23.

Ouch raises general awareness of cluster headaches, and Unique raises awareness and supports those affected by a rare chromosome disorder.

The 39-year-old said: “I choose those two charities because I know people who are affected by the issues they deal with and they are not well known, so I hope to raise money and awareness.”

The event started at 8pm at The Black Lion pub and there was live music from local musicians.

Katy said: “The night went really well, I decided to shave my dreadlocks off because it was something different, it also gave my friends a chance to have a good laugh. The pub was packed and I want to thank everyone who came down to support me.”
