She will Brave the Shave on Sunday – the day after her sister’s wedding.

She has £170 in pledges but hopes to raise at least £400 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

“I wanted to do something to raise money and I can’t run a marathon, so this seemed like the next best thing,” said Georgia. “I returned home from 10 months volunteering only a month ago. In the time I was away, so many friends and family were affected by cancer – it was shocking.

“Cutting my hair off feels like the least I can do.”

Her hair will be donated to The Little Princess Trust and made into wigs for people who’ve lost their hair.
