Finance manager Amanda said Mind ‘means a lot to me’.

“They deserve every penny,” she added.

“Mental health is a massive issue and I know charities like Mind rely on public donations.

“If I raise more than £2,000 I will also give the Yorkshire Air Ambulance a donation.

“I want to make sure the charities get as much as possible.

“People have been so supportive and I am truly appreciative.”

Referring to the hair cut, Amanda said: “It may seem crazy to some but to me it’s not.

“As my husband will tell you – ‘he didn’t marry me for my hair!’

“It’s from the heart and hair will always grow back.”
