Two ten-year-old girls have been praised for their bravery after shaving their heads for a children's charity.
Libby Locke and Lilly Sargeant both braved the shave at a North Walsham school fair, for Make-A-Wish.
The girls, who have known each other since reception, were given their dramatic new looks on Sunday, June 8.
They aimed to raise £1,000 for the charity, who grant the wishes of children with life-threatening conditions, but collected a total of £2,024.30 via their JustGiving page.
The pair stated on the page: 'We're best friends who want to make a difference to sick children's lives.'
Shaun Campbell, Make-A-Wish regional fundraising manager, said: 'Libby and Lilly have been absolutely amazing from start to finish,
'Without people supporting our work we wouldn't be able to continue granting wishes.
