Health and social care student Nikki Taylor (16) of Deeping St Nicholas took a short cut to help Macmillan Cancer Support.

Nikki had her head shaved at Oasis Health and Beauty, Spalding, after family and friends at South Holland Post 16 Centre pledged to sponsor the trim.

The teenager, pictured with hairdresser Alana Smith, raised more than £300 and is now planning a fundraiser for dementia patients next year.

“My auntie died of cancer when she was only 41 and although I didn’t know her very well, she inspired me to help others with cancer,” Nikki said.
