Scare cut

Wishaw Press - - FRONT PAGE - Ross Thom­son

Colt­ness wo­man San­dra Foy this week proved she was a cut above the rest.

Big hearted San­dra had grown her long black locks for the past 15 years but de­cided to have her hair cut to raise cash for the Wishaw-based Les Hoey DreamMaker Foun­da­tion.

San­dra, who first be­came in­volved with the char­ity af­ter Les or­gan­ised for her son Shaun to meet box­ing leg­end Sugar Ray Leonard, has now raised more than £1000 for DreamMaker.

She said: “When I first de­cided to get my hair cut I thought a good to­tal would be £200.

“I def­i­nitely didn’t ex­pect to get up to £1,000.

“I was ter­ri­fied when Les got hold of the scis­sors. I was shaking!

“But af­ter hav­ing 15 years of long hair, I’m en­joy­ing hav­ing it shorter.

“I can dry it now in 10 min­utes com­pared to a cou­ple of hours!”

The event was also shown live on Face­book with San­dra’s hair go­ing to the Lit­tle Princess Trust who pro­vide real hair wigs to children and young adults up to the age of 24 who have lost their hair due to can­cer treat­ment and other ill­nesses.
