On Saturday Jeannette Emmerson, 46, lost about 14 inches of hair thanks to Katie Hensby of Generation in Great Yarmouth in aid of the Louise Hamilton Centre at the James Paget University Hospital and the Little Princess Trust.

The mother-of two is a member of the Phoenix Karate School, which in 2016 mourned the loss of instructor and 6th Dan Charlie Trorey, who died aged 62.

The Louise Hamilton Centre is a supportive and palliative care resource centre and Ms Emmerson has raised at least £215 in sponsorship for it through her Facebook profile page.

Her hair will be donated to the Little Princess Trust which provides real hair wigs to youngsters who have lost their hair due to cancer.

She said her new look would take time to get used to.
