16 year old Leah Dean is making the ultimate hair sacrifice for her former English teacher, Michelle Holding, of the Albion Academy who is currently battling breast cancer at just 31 years of age. Leah is going to shave off her waist length locks to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

"Miss Holding was really open about her cancer and it got me thinking about raising money in her honour" says Leah "In March I raised £200 from the Pretty Muddy 5k run but I wanted to raise more. I decided on the head shave because it's a pretty big thing when girls do it. I'll be a bit cold for a bit...

"At first my friends thought I was a bit mad but I got a good response from the school, with pupils I didn't even know coming up and giving me money and the teachers were on board too" she adds

Leah's dad, Joe, is also on board... "I was a bit emotional at first because she was going to lose all her hair but I've got used to it now; it's fine she can always wear a hat" he says "I try to make a joke of it and it's for a good cause..."

The sponsored head shave is going to be a public event at St Boniface's Social Club in Lower Broughton on Friday 3rd July, with a DJ, raffle and more.

Charity Head Shave
Friday 3rd July 7:30pm
St Boniface's Social Club, 250-252 Lower Broughton Road, Lower Broughton M7 2JX

Tickets available from the venue in advance £2.50

SALFORD RED DEVILS AUDITOR ‘CASTS DOUBT’ ABOUT ‘COMPANY’S ABILITY TO CONTINUE’

Star date: 19th February 2018

SALFORD REDS ACCOUNTS SHOW ALMOST £9MILLION LIABILITIES

New accounts published for the Salford Red Devils show that the company made losses of over £700,000 last year and that it has net liabilities of almost £9million, including the £1million loan from Salford City Council.

Despite the directors insisting that restructures and changes within the club forecast a 'modest profit', its auditor states that the conditions "indicate the existence of a material uncertainty which may cast significant doubt about the company's ability to continue as a going concern".
