A schoolgirl has had her long locks chopped off to help other children who have lost their hair through cancer treatment.
Nine-year-old Chloe-Gabriella Morris took the plunge at the weekend and had her hair cut short to raise money for charity.
Mum-of-three Lisa said: “It was brilliant. She loves it. It’s a total transformation.”
A hairdresser came round to the house on Marshall Crescent on Saturday to do the honours.
Lisa said that the decision had been so sudden that they didn’t have time to organise a community event.
“One day she wanted her hair shaving off, so we looked on the internet to see where we could donate it to,” she said.
Lisa and Chloe had come across the Little Princess Trust which provides wigs for children in need.
Originally Chloe had set herself a fundraising target of £100, which she smashed within 48 hours of setting up a Just Giving page. Chloe has now totted up £212 on her site but is hoping to raise £350, the price of a wig.
The family are urging people to donate online at justgiving.com/Chloe-Gabriella-Morris or text SCXY95 followed by £ with the amount to 70070.
