Security officer Kay Bali shows off her newly snipped locks – after having 24ins chopped off for a Your Trust Charity.

The 37-year-old decided to have her luscious locks lopped off after volunteering at Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust.

After spending time assisting at the pop up shop, run by the organisation’s Your Trust Charity, she decided to have the haircut in aid of the good cause and has raised £1,500.

The task was carried out at Sandwell Hospital on Wednesday (15 July) by Liza Gill, Volunteer Service Manager, who’s also a part-time beautician.

Afterwards, Kay, from Wednesbury, said: “I love my new hair – although I must admit I was a little bit nervous when she started to snip away, as I’ve had long hair since I was a child.

“But I’m so glad to have had it chopped off for a really good cause and I’m proud to support Your Trust Charity. I have seen first-hand the good work that they do.

“There are so many people who have donated, including the domestics, ward staff, my colleagues in security, and those working within catering to name but a few. I’ve seen how tirelessly colleagues work here, from frontline healthcare workers to domestics. I think that this is the perfect cause, especially whilst the NHS is really under pressure, trying to deliver the best care possible during this awful outbreak.

“Lastly I would like to thank Liza for giving me such a fabulous haircut.”

Amanda Winwood, Fundraising Manager for Your Trust Charity, added: “We’d like to say a huge thank you to Kay for doing this. It’s a very brave step to have that much hair cut off in one go. Kay has been a fantastic volunteer throughout the pandemic and this just shows her dedication to the Trust and the charity.”
