A grandfather’s battle with stage four lung cancer has inspired his daughter and two granddaughters to cut their hair in an event to raise funds for a charity.

A grandfather’s battle with stage four lung cancer has inspired his daughter and two granddaughters to cut their hair in an event to raise funds for a charity.

In aid of grandfather Chris Cane, 70, Angie Cane, 42 and her two daughters, Remi Newman, 13 and Tia Newman, 9, will donate raised funds and their hair to The Little Princess Trust, which gives away real hair wigs to children who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment or other illnesses.

Ms Cane said: “We as a family are devastated with the news of our dad and granddad’s plight and that he himself is probably going to lose his hair, so we chose this charity.”

The event, ‘cuts 4 cancer’ will involve a range of activities including bouncy castles, performances from dance schools and a visit from the mayor of Barking and Dagenham.

Entry tickets will be £2 for adults, £1 for children and free for those under one.

It will run on October 7 from 2-6pm at the Roundhouse Pub Hall, Dagenham.
