Natasha's new look

Natasha Krywald decided to shave off her hair to raise money in support of seven-year-old Nelly from Rushden.

Nelly was diagnosed with leukaemia last year and Natasha has found it heartbreaking to see the youngster go through treatment.

So she and her fiance Callum shaved their hair off on April 15 and have already raised £1,000 to send Nelly on a dream holiday To Disneyland Paris.

Natasha said: “We have had an absolutely amazing response to our headshave and have raised £1,000 so far.

“Nelly is over the moon, I am so glad we have managed to raise so much.

“She is a brave and inspirational little girl who deserves every penny to make her smile.”

Natasha is getting used to her new hairstyle, and said: “Being bald is a little weird, but hopefully I am rocking it.”
