Five generous girls from Salterford House School in Calverton have donated their long-grown locks to The Little Princess Trust to help children suffering with cancer restore their confidence and identity.

KH Hair in Arnold cut a total of 256 inches of hair off the girls, which will now be sent to the charity to use to make wigs.

“We want to give children who do not have hair due to cancer treatment, a chance to feel happy and more confident about the way they look.” said the girls.

Most of us know a member of our family or a friend who has suffered from cancer and this is our little way of helping them. We are really pleased to help another child feel better at a difficult time.”

It costs the charity £550 on average to make donated real hair into a new wig for a child and £150 for a wig fitting so, in addition to donating their hair, the girls have raised over £2,100 so far to help.”
