Rosemary Coulstock, of Aspen Drive, Minster, went under the clippers on Monday, in aid of Minster three-year-old Ella Louth, who has cerebral palsy, brain damage, epilepsy and global development disorder.

A raffle was also held and it is hoped once all the money has been counted Ella’s family will have raised the necessary £750 to £1,000 to buy her a Pea Pod chair, which has to be specially moulded due to her hips being out of place.

Ella’s grandmother Teresa Louth, of Aspen Drive, said: “We didn’t expect the response that we had. The club was packed with people there doing other things but they all supported it as well. We had 36 raffle prizes donated.”
