The wait proved worthwhile for Emneth’s Isobel Holmes, who had her hair cut off for the Little Princess Trust last week.
Isobel, aged eight, had been growing her hair for two years before having 20 centimetres snipped off by godmother Samantha Elsey at Keelings Hair Studio in King’s Lynn.
The youngster, who was inspired by somebody else who took on the challenge, has already raised £1,200 – with more money still to come in. Isobel’s mum, Debbie Richards, said: “It was going to go one way or the other, but Isobel loved her new haircut.”
