More than £1,600 raised for FORCE so far.

A Honiton fund-raiser, who was inspired to shave her head for charity after her close friend was diagnosed with an incurable cancer, has now raised more than £1,600.

Klara Bodfish got the chop last month to show her support for her friend Abbey Becow, who was diagnosed with secondary breast cancer, and raise money for FORCE.

The charity based in Exeter has provided a huge amount of support for Abbey and her family.
