A BRAVE mum-of-three is set to shave off all her hair for a charity that was close to her gran’s heart.

Kyleigh McCord (27) lost her grandmother Sadie to natural causes back in May and as a tribute to her memory she wanted to raise as much money as she possible can for the British Heart Foundation.

Sadie, who was originally from Kilsyth but moved to Twechar when she got married, had supported the charity her whole life.

Former Kilsyth Academy pupil Kyleigh explained: “She always gave to the British Heart Foundation. Even at her funeral, she requested that people made a donation to the charity rather than buy her flowers.

“I think she supported them because of my grandad John, he had heart problems.”

Kyleigh added: “I wanted to do something for the charity because it is my way of coping with her death.

“I have never done anything in my life that would make people think that is a real achievement but I want to do this for her and make her proud.

“She was my best friend. When I was younger we went on holiday together. She was such a fun gran and she was the best in fact she was a brilliant woman.”
