A big-hearted Advanced Level Public Services student at Burnley College Sixth Form Centre has 'braved the shave' to help a charity which provides wigs for young cancer patients.
Megan Horan (16), a former pupil at Unity College, decided to have her long hair, that she had been proud of all her life, cut in memory of her grandmother, who died when Megan was still at primary school.
She said: "My mum's friend cut my hair and we managed to get four long plaits for the Little Princess Trust, which will help provide wigs for children who have cancer treatments that mean they lose their hair."
Megan, who works at Air Unlimited Inflatable Park in her free time, is in the first weeks of her two-year Advanced Level Public Services course and plans to progress to University before becoming a fire-fighter.
She said: "I'm determined to join the Fire and Rescue Service: as a fire fighter, I'll be helping people when they most need it, My Advanced Level Public Services course is a step towards my career goal and will be the ideal springboard to degree level study."
