Each time 10-year-old Katelyn Owen’s hair is long enough, she takes on the challenge of shaving it all off to donate to the Little Princess Trust.
Gosport girl Katelyn is donating her long locks for the fourth time after braving the razor once again on Saturday.
Katelyn said: ‘I want to shave my head because children who are really ill sometimes lose their hair and I think they would be really happy to receive a wig.
‘I think it's important because it's a really good thing to do and it will make someone very happy.’
The kind schoolgirl first cut her hair for the charity when she was just five years old, and raised £200 for Great Ormond Street Hospital.
She has been hooked on charity giving ever since, and is pleased to have raised £550 this time to be given to Little Princess Trust.
The Little Princess Trust provides free real hair wigs to children and young people, up to 24 years, who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment or other conditions.
Generous friends and family watched online as Katelyn’s locks were chopped off by dad Paul Owen, and donations flooded in to support the great cause.
Katelyn’s new, much shorter hairdo has drawn compliments from plenty of family and friends, and the keen fundraiser is pleased to be doing her bit for the charity.
Katelyn said: ‘It makes me feel really happy that I can help by doing this and raising money for them as well.’
Mum Monique Owen looked on proudly as Katelyn’s braids were cut off and her head was shaved.
She said: ‘We are extremely proud of Katelyn. She is always thinking of other people and is so kind, loving and generous.
‘The fact that this is her fourth time in five years just shows how amazing she is, and we all love her very much.’
