A brave fundraiser had her head shaved to raise funds to help homeless children in Sheffield.

Karren Maycock, aged 43, braved the chop to raise money for Roundabout.

She was encouraged to undertake the challenge by her mum Tina, president of Abbeydale Inner Wheel group and a hairdresser, who picked Roundabout as her charity of the year.

Karren has already raised more than £2,000 for Roundabout, which gives shelter and support and teaches life skills to homeless young people across the city.

Its emergency hostel supports 16 to 21-year-olds and provides a safe place for young people who have nowhere else to go.

Amy Casbolt,from Roundabout, said: “We are very grateful to Karren for bravely shaving her head to raise money for young homeless people.

“The money she has raised will make a huge difference to the work we do.”
