A Penryn woman paid tribute to her late partner by having her hair cut for charity.

Alison Williams raised a total of £345 for the British Lung Foundation, beating her target of £300.

The fundraiser was in memory of her late partner Brian Kempthorne who sadly passed away on Christmas Day in 2017.

Alison said: "He didn't like me having short hair so it has been long for over 30 years, but I wanted to do something for lung cancer.

"I know it won't bring Brian back, but hopefully it will help with the research. I had 18 inches cut off but it was worth it.

"Thanks to Andrea Messer from Reflections hairdressers Penryn for cutting my hair off and giving me a completely lovely new look."

Earlier in the day there was a coffee morning hosted by the Penryn Community Rynners as part of Active Plus that raised a total of £428 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Alison said: "Thanks to all those that brought in cakes and savouries to sell, and all those that came to support us, and thank you to Julie Tucker from the Penryn bingo for their kind donation, and to Ian McCabe from the local spar shop who donated tea, coffee, biscuits and prizes."
