Three Maldon hairdressers got their running shoes on and raised more than £1,000 for Cancer Research UK.

Louise Ribbets, 46, Jess Ackland, 21, and Helen Patmore, 33, ran this year’s 10km Race for Life in Hylands Park to raise money for the charity in memory of clients and family members who have been affected by cancer.

The ladies, who all work at The Old Cutting Rooms, in Church Walk, Maldon, have raised a grand total of £1,320.
