WITH the weather not warming up Kate Yates has been resorting to wearing a hat after she dramatically had her hair shaved off on Saturday.

The 32-year-old from Saunderton Lea had her head shaved at Rebecca Hill in Princes Risborough to raise money for a charity in Mongolia called Go Help.

Meanwhile her 37-year-old husband, Steve, had his legs waxed which took more than an hour.

They have so far raised more than £1,700 and will hand over the money in person as they are driving to Mongolia from the UK in a truck, covering 10,000 miles.

Kate, a strategic planner for London Underground, said: "It was a very surreal day. It was good fun though.

"I am wearing a hat outside but I am not wearing one at work and I am getting a lot of reaction at work.

"The general comment I seem to have got is I have a good head shape for it."

The couple will pay for all the travel costs and will donate the truck to the charity.
