TURN your scrap metal into much needed cash for a cancer charity based in Comet country.

On Bank Holiday Monday, head along to Wickes car park on Monkswood Way in Stevenage, where Stevenage Skip Hire will be collecting scrap metal.

All the money made from the scrap will be donated to Cancer Hair Care at Lister Hospital.

The charity offers a free service to help people coping with hair loss during cancer treatment.

The service, which runs every Monday and has been established for four months, is run by volunteer Jasmin Julia Gupta. She explained: "It's open to all Hertfordshire cancer patients, for any aspects of hair care during cancer treatment. It may be to allay fears prior to a patient's first treatment, or to have a first haircut, or to try on headscarves."

Jasmin said she was running out of funds when Stevenage Skip Hire approached her with this fundraising idea.
