A young girl has turned her sorrow into something positive in memory of her beloved grandma.

Loula Smith of Moorside Road, Drighlington, had more than just a trim at her hairdressers on Friday to raise money for charity.

And the 12-year-old pupil of Bruntcliffe High School has raised a staggering £485 so far for Sue Ryder Charity in memory of her grandma Renee Miller who passed away three months ago.

Mum Ren said: “Her grandma’s passing has been incredibly hard for Loula as her grandma had lived with us.

“She has really struggled at school and we believe this is a real turning point for her.”

Loula visited Whitehall Hairdressers on Moorland after school to get her hair cut.

Her locks have now been donated to the Little Princesses Trust, which makes wigs for children who have lost their hair due to illness.

But this is not Loula’s first adventure as two years ago she took on the challenge of a charity mountain climb and is planning more fundraisers.

Ren said: “We are incredibly proud of our daughter.”

The family are now planning to cycle from Liverpool to Leeds to raise money for the Kerry Key Foundation.

The charity was set up in memory of family friend Mrs Key who died after battling breast cancer for seven years.
