On Thursday (March 13) Sarah Taylor, a veterinary nurse, let hairdresser Katy Smith of Maverick Hairdressing in Eynesbury loose on her locks to raise money for Cobley Cob and Ex-racehorse Rescue in Bedfordshire. Mrs Taylor, of the High Street, started her volunteering with the charity when they opened a couple of months ago and wanted to do something to help boost funds. She said: I started helping out there and they were looking for fundraising ideas. I tried to think of something a bit different to do. So far, she has raised about £100, and is hoping that she can top that with more donations. She said: Its a bit of a shock to the system, Ive had dreads for two-and-a-half years and long hair for about 15 years.
