The eight-year old hopes to raise more than £1,000 for the Piam Brown Unit at Southampton General, as well as donating her locks to the Little Princess Trust to be made into wigs for children undergoing cancer treatment.

Niamh’s family friend Andrea Marshall, from Stubbington, is also going to face the chop today.

They were inspired to fundraise when a friend’s son Seth, who is at school with Niamh, was diagnosed with cancer.
