North Petherton singer to have head shaved for charity
A TEENAGE singer from North Petherton is bravely having her hair shaved off for charity.
Jessica Dyer, 16, is a female vocalist in the popular local band, The Thatchers, and is shedding her locks on November 29 at the Bunch of Grapes pub in St John Street, Bridgwater.
She is undergoing the headshave in aid of Love Musgrove, the official charity of Taunton's Musgrove Park Hospital.
Jessica said: “I'm doing this event to remember my grandmother, Truda Dyer, who unfortunately died of cancer. However, the Beacon Centre at Musgrove gave all of us support the entire way through.
“This money will hopefully go towards some excellent equipment.”
The band will play at the event from 8pm and will break at 9pm, when the members, which include Jessica's father Henry, will shave her head.
