Pals ready for charity chop
TWO teenage pals will be going under the razor to raise money for young cancer sufferers.
Olivia Wright, 17, of Gelli Road, Llanelli, and pal Katie Everton-Howells, 18, from Ammanford, will be shaving their heads to raise money for children's cancer charity Clic Sargent.
And the pair — who both study animal management at Coleg Sir Gar's Pibwrlwyd campus — have kicked off their fundraising campaign already, appealing for sponsorship ahead of the shave in August.
Olivia said: "People in our families have had cancer so we're both quite passionate about helping this kind of charity.

"For a child it's an even worse experience so we thought we would do it for them."
She said the two were hoping to raise around £400 over the next few months.
"We wanted to have enough time to raise a good amount of money for the charity," she said.
"Katie is going to have a buzz cut but I'm going to be completely bald. £400 is enough for a family to have a week away for respite, so that's our target."
