Chesterfield youngster loses locks to help kids with cancer
A big-hearted youngster has lost her long locks to help poorly children.
Eight-year-old Antonia Nicolaou, of Chesterfield, had her hair cut for the Little Princess Trust charity on Tuesday.
The Little Princess Trust provides real-hair wigs for free to children and young adults who have sadly lost their own hair due to cancer treatment and other illnesses.
Antonia’s mum Eleni said: “I’m so proud of her - my heart could burst.
“She’s a very caring, humanitarian person and she’s done this completely off her own back.
“She said to me one day, ‘I’ve got really long hair - I don’t need it all’.
“So she decided to have her hair cut to help others who are going through a very difficult time.”
The Whitecotes Primary Academy pupil has also raised £750 for the Little Princess Trust and would like to thank everyone who has supported her.
