Courage as teenager loses her hair for charity

IT all started well, but tears welled-up as brave 15-year-old Georgie Jackson had her hair shaved for charity at the Queen’s Head last night…

TEARS WELLED up in the eyes of brave 15-year-old Georgie Jackson as she had her hair shaved for charity last night.

An onlooker – one of the dozens of people who had turned up to support Georgie at the head-shave event – called it the “Anne Hathaway moment” as the teenager overcome with emotion realised the full extent of her charitable actions and tears came!

Anne Hathaway was the actress who played Fantine in the movie Les Miserables who dramatically gets her head shaved as she sells her hair. The drama was no less intense at the Queen’s Head, Hedon last night where Georgie was raising money to support two good causes; the Dove House and Thorpe Hall hospices.

As these photos show, Georgie started off well, but as her beautiful locks began to fall, so did her bravado. However, it all ended well, as the smile returned to the new ‘shorter-haired’ girl’s face.

Georgie’s Mum Emily Harrison said: “The entire fund-raising event has been devised by Georgie herself who wanted a different way to show support for her Dad who is fighting cancer. Georgie also wanted to raise funds for the hospices which do so much to support people with cancer.”

Dad, Chris Jackson, who was also at the event said that he was “extremely proud” of his daughter.

Emily and Georgie passed on their thanks to Andy Brown and the staff at the Queen’s Head for doing so much to make the event a success. Georgie had set out to raise £1,000 (£500 each for the two hospices), and with the support of the pub it looks like she is going to beat that target.
