Teacher Jayne Cooling is having her hair shaved off to raise cash for a charity close to her heart.

Mrs Cooling, 44, a year five teacher at Pontefract’s De Lacy Primary School, is raising money for Cancer Research UK in memory of her mum, Sandra Stratford, and her mother-in-law, Ann Cooling, who both died from cancer nine weeks apart in 1999.

Mrs Cooling, who is aiming to raise £2,000 for the charity, is being backed by staff, pupils and governors at the school.

Mrs Cooling, of Windemere Drive, Knottingley, said: “Cancer affects everyone in some way.

“I knew when I lost my mum and mother-in-law that one day I would do something to raise money for a cancer charity but it was too raw and painful to consider doing for a long time.

“The last couple of years has been easier so I just thought it was time to do something.”

The head shave will take place at Kellingley Club in Knottingley on Saturday, July 5 at 9pm.

There will also be a raffle, to boost funds.

Mrs Cooling added: “I’m nervous about all the staring and pointing I’m going to experience. But I’m excited as having no hair will save me a fortune in hair products!”
