As well as raising cash for the charity, Donna’s hair will also be donated to the Little Princess Trust.

Donna’s mum Sue said: ‘She’s pleased because she will be able to do two good deeds in one. She’s feeling very excited but a bit apprehensive.’

Donna, 24, will be going down to a grade two. She has raised £400 so far.
