AFTER two years of letting her hair grow long and free, 10-year-old Alice Winfield is finally facing the chop to help a children’s charity.
Determined Alice, from Grotton, was eight years old when she decided she wanted to donate her hair to The Little Princess Trust.
The charity supplies and funds high quality wigs made of real hair to give to children and young people who have hair loss as a result of cancer treatment or other illnesses.
To achieve her mission, Alice, who attends St Anne’s Primary in Lydgate, has had to keep her hair in a good condition and have it regularly trimmed over the last 24 months.
Now she is ready to donate 12 inches of her lovely locks and will have it cut by Rachael Rogers at Wilson & Rogers hairdressers in Lees on Saturday, October 19.
Her proud parents Steve and Juliet said: “Alice is very thoughtful and is always thinking of others.”
As well as donating her hair, Alice is also raising money for The Little Princess Trust and has set a target of £350, which is the cost of making one real hair wig.
