A young Mintlaw woman has shaved off her hair in order to raise funds for two charities.

Cara Davidson (22), a former pupil of Anna Ritchie School in Peterhead, decided she wanted to do something to give others a helping hand in life.

Cara, who has the daily challenge of moderate learning disabilities, opted to shave her head for charity, which she did on May 18 at a special fundraising night.

Her haircut was carried out in Aberdeen and the two charities to benefit, which are close to her heart and very active locally, are Macmillan Nurses and Friends of Anchor Unit.

She also chose to donate her hair to the ‘Little Princess Trust’ which makes wigs for children who have suffered hair loss as a result of cancer or leukaemia treatments.

Cara has set up a justgiving fundraising page, which allows people to donate online directly to the charity of their choice.

And she has thanked all those who have donated online to-date and those who went along to support her headshaving evening and helped fundraise on the night to the two worthy causes.

There’s still time to contribute.
