  • Su Derrick of Benamargosa will be losing her locks on 8 June to raise money for the charity Axarquía Animal Rescue

Following the success of Sam Matthews-McCarthy's head shave on 1 May, fellow Axarquía Animal Rescue (AAR) supporter, Su Derrick, will be losing her locks on 8 June to raise money for the charity.

Su said, "I saw the article in SUR about Sam Matthews-McCarthy having her head shaved, which has prompted me to offer to brave-the-shave to raise money for them on my birthday, 8 June."

She added that a neighbour has offered to lend her "a large hat" and that due to the restrictions she "won't be going out much anyway".

Su said she had hoped to donate her hair to a a charity which makes wigs for people who have lost their hair through cancer.

However, she explained that that the NGO she got in touch with is currently unable to take donations due to Covid-19 rules.
