A BRAVE mother from Bournemouth had her hair cut by a former Bond Girl to raise money for charity.

Gloria Colclough, 70, cut off her long locks in solidarity of her daughter, who is currently undergoing treatment for breast cancer.

Gloria said: "My daughter was worried about losing her hair, so I said I’d shave my head too.

"My younger daughter came up with the idea of fundraising and donating the proceeds to the Bournemouth Hospital Charity, and the hair to the Little Princess’s Trust.

"So far I have raised about £1,100, with a goal of £2,000, which I hope to exceed."

Former Bond Girl Caroline Munro, who appeared as Naomi in the 1977 classic The Spy Who Loved Me, joined Gloria at the barbers, and even took the first snip.

"I think she is very brave to have done it, and when I heard she was doing it, I couldn’t not come," she said.

"It’s amazing, and she’s amazing!"

After Caroline took the first snip, the rest of the task was carried out by barber Tina Desmond-Haskell, who said: "There will be lots of boys and girls who will be happy that they will have new wigs.

"It’s wonderful that Gloria is helping more than one charity."

After the shave, Gloria said: "Hair today, gone tomorrow! I’m pleased that I did it, and I would like to thank Tina for doing it for me.

"I have never felt better in my life."

Tom Pacey, from the Bournemouth Hospital Charity, said: "Fundraisers like this are becoming a lot more common, but we definitely welcome it.

"Gloria is a wonderful woman and we are grateful for her fundraising."

To help Gloria’s fundraising further, Caroline, who appeared in numerous classic horror and science fiction films of the 1970s and 80s, has left some autographed photos with Gloria for anyone who was unable to make her autograph signing, in lieu of donations to Gloria’s Just Giving page.
