A KIND-HEARTED 10-year-old girl has cut off her lovely locks as well as raising £1,700 to help make wigs for poorly children who have lost their hair.Alice Winfield, 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, had to keep her hair in a good condition and have it regularly trimmed over the last 24 months.
Then the big day arrived in October for her to have 12 inches cut off by Rachael Rogers at Wilson & Rogers hairdressers in Lees.
Her proud parents Steve and Juliet explained: “The haircut was fantastic. We were very overwhelmed and proud of what Alice was doing and how she handled having her hair cut.
“We are also very grateful to Rachael who cut Alice’s hair for free and also made a donation.
“Alice was giggling while Rachael cut off her two ponytails. She was really happy after as she knew it was going to be made into a wig for a little boy or girl and having a wig would make them feel they fit in and don’t stand out by looking different.
“We would like to thank everyone who has donated and if people still want to donate they can do up to November 15.”
