A Bordon family is to host a fundraising event at the Tesco superstore in Bordon on Saturday, April 22, in aid of cervical cancer research and The Rosemary Foundation, with exercise bikes, leg waxing, head shaving and more from 10am.

The event is being organised by Hannah French, whose sister Jasmin has been diagnosed with a rare and aggressive cervical cancer. 

Hannah’s family have already held one successful ‘brave the shave’ fundraiser, donating their hair to the Little Princess Trust to be made into wigs for children battling cancer.

They hope the Tesco event will raise further awareness and funds for their causes.

Hannah said: "The words 'I’m sorry, but it’s cancer' are the words you never wish to hear. Whether you're the person receiving those devastating words or a family member or friend sitting close by, squeezing the hand of loved one as they quietly let the tears fall.

"I have sadly become one of those people who has recently had a family member diagnosed with an uncommon aggressive type of cervical cancer."

Hannah added her family chose to shave their hair "to help Jasmin take control of the one thing she can before this horrible disease takes it from her, the loss of her hair".

She continued: "Please donate anything you can, no matter how big or small and raise awareness for this amazing charity and spare a thought for my amazing red-headed sister Jasmin Marie while we battle this disease together. You are not alone Jazz. We got you!"
