She said: “I was nervous about the shave. The adrenaline kicked in and suddenly it starts to feel real.

“I was super excited the whole time my head was being shaved. This was a very reflective moment for me, realising and hoping how many people I will help.

“I feel so proud I did this. Knowing that the money is going towards life-saving research makes it rewarding.”

Ruby has broken her original target of £100, raising close to £800, with donations still flooding in.

Ruby’s mum, Debbie, said: “She looks great and feels great – she’s a little warrior. People have been really supportive and we have received some lovely messages from friends and family.

“Ruby is selfless; it doesn’t surprise me in the slightest that she would do something like this.”
