RAZORS and rock songs will be top of the bill at a charity event in Hartford later this month in a bid to raise money for a mum battling cancer.

Chanti Cleland and Sarah Yeats are colleagues at Hartford Primary School and together with Chanti's 18-year-old son Luke, they will take to the stage at Hartford Social Club to have their heads shaved.

The family affair will continue as Chanti's husband Chris entertains the crowd with cover band The Variants as part of the 'Let's show cancer we know how to rock' event on Saturday, May 17.

The special evening is aimed at raising money for a close friend of Chanti's who has recently been diagnosed with stage three breast cancer and, after undergoing chemotherapy, has now lost her hair.

Chanti said: "My friend, who is a very private person, supported me in 2006 when my mum died from breast cancer and I wanted to do something to help her and her family.

"We'd like to raise enough money to send the family on holiday, so they can enjoy some time together, and hopefully the evening of entertainment at Hartford Social Club can help."

Mobile hairdresser Kirsty Mullineaux will have her clippers and razors ready for 9.30pm as Chanti, Sarah and Luke prepare to lose their hair.

Tickets for the event, which are free, are available from Chanti on 07957160333 and there will be donation buckets and tins inside the venue on Bradburns Lane in Northwich throughout the evening.
