Her mum Kirsty said: “I’m extremely proud of Sienna for doing this – she’s so brave.

“Her older sister did it a few years ago and since then she’s been determined to do the do the same to help raise money for Macmillan.”

Sienna has already had some of her hair cut off and donated it to the Little Princess Trust, which provides wigs for youngsters undergoing cancer treatment.

“If what she has cut off on August 21 is long enough then that will be donated to the Little Princess Trust too,” added Kirsty.
