A little girl from Gaddesby hopes to raise enough sponsorship money to pay for a wig for a child who has lost their own hair through cancer treatment.
Not only that, the 10-year-old is donating her own locks to the cause.
Matilda Parr will have her hair cut on Saturday, at the Diamond Hair Salon in Melton’s Bell Centre.
She said: “I am going to have my hair cut and donate it to The Little Princess Trust to be made into a wig for a girl or boy who has lost their hair through illness.
“I am hoping to donate at least 10 inches of my hair to the charity.”
Matilda has set up a fundraising page on the Justgiving website. She has set a target of £350, which is the amount it costs the Little Princess Trust to purchase a wig.
The Little Princess Trust was set up in memory of Hannah, a little girl who lost her hair during chemotherapy treatment for cancer. Sadly, Hannah died in 2005 and her parents set up the charity to provide real hair wigs, free of charge, to children suffering hair loss in the UK.
