A group of hairdressers are preparing to chop up the countryside terrain as they embark on a charity walk.

The team at Ziggy’s Hairdressers, in Lynn, will be raising funds for brain tumour research and support after Lyn Barber, usually known as Sue, the owner of the shop, was recently diagnosed with a tumour.

The ninth annual family walk will take place at Holkham Hall on Sunday, October 11, and the shop are encouraging as many people as possible to take part.

Luzette Cleaver said: “Sue, Vickie, Natasha, Amy and myself would like to welcome clients, friends and family and anyone who has had cancer effect them in any way to join us at the family walk.

“Sue, our friend and boss, will be joining us on the walk. If you are not able to come along we are collecting donations in Ziggy’s Hairdressers with all money going straight to the Astro Brain Tumour Fund for research.

“It would be fantastic to see many people doing the walk to raise money for brain tumours. So far we’ve been given £885 in donations in the shop. We’d like to get that figure up to more than £1,000.”

Sue said: “I am very touched by how staff, clients, friends and family have given to the Astro Brain Tumour Fund.

“It’s lovely the support I’ve been given and all the cards and messages I have received.

“I would like to say a big thank you to everyone, especially Luzette, for organising all this.”

The Norfolk Family Walk on October 11, which is for the Astro Brain Tumour Fund, starts at 10am and costs £5 for adults, while children are free.

Participants have the choice of walking one, three, six or 10 miles, while the one-mile walk for children has activities along the way.
