This week, Lili Butterworth from Liversedge shaved her head to raise money and awareness for Candlelighters.

She chose to do this after Candlelighters supported her family when her four year old brother, Louie Blue was diagnosed with Leukaemia last year.

Lili said:‘I was very nervous but also excited to be doing this for my baby brother and raise money for Candlelighters! I also love my new hair. ’
