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.'
