A six-year-old girl from had more than a foot of her hair cut off in aid of the Little Princess Trust.
Lillie Davies, a pupil at Copnor Primary School, wanted little children with cancer to ‘feel a little happier’ and decided to do it after seeing an ad for the charity, which makes wigs for children who have lost their hair.
A local hairdresser cut 35cms from her brown locks at her home on Saturday.
Lillie’s mum Louise said: ‘I am so very proud of Lillie who has made a selfless act to a child and made that decision on her own at such a young age. She is a beautiful girl inside and out and I couldn’t be more proud to say I’m her mum.’
So far she has raised £75 of her £100 target for the trust but is hoping to add more by the end of the month.
Lillie is an aspiring actress and model and is represented by Zoe Totten from Fearless casting and modelling agency.
Ms Totten said: ‘Lillie is such a courageous little girl and inspiring to so many. I am very proud of Lillie, helping to make other little girls feel like a little princess.’
