Well done to our Llangefni colleague Rachel Jones who had 14 inches of her hair cut off to raise money for our Tickled Pink campaign and the Little Princess Trust.

Rachel, who's an admin colleague, had her long hair cut in the store with colleagues and her mum Paula close by.

Local hairdresser Llinos cut Rachel's hair free of charge on the day, and the event raised nearly £1,000.

Rachel said: "My mum was diagnosed with breast cancer 12 years ago, she went into remission, then this year it came back.

"I've always supported Tickled Pink and it seemed even more relevant after what's happened this year.

"I donated the hair to the Little Princess Trust who make wigs for children who have lost their hair due to cancer and other illnesses, so it was great to help several charities at the same time."

The store's community champion Sam Broadley said: "Lots of customers and colleagues supported Rachel. We're all really proud of what she did."
