“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.
