An inspirational eight-year-old girl has raised more than £600 and donated her hair to a charity which provides wigs to youngsters battling cancer.

Amy Holt wanted to help the Little Princess Trust after her grandmother, Sue Seagrave, had been diagnosed with cancer.

The Gorefield Primary School pupil did not think twice about having her long blonde hair cut into a bob to help others.

The Little Princess Trust provides real hair wigs for children who are undergoing cancer treatment.

Amy’s proud parents Cara and Paul, who live in Gorefield with sons Danny, six, and five-months-old Ronnie, have thanked friends and family for their generosity.

Mrs Holt, who has mailed 11in of hair to the charity, said: “We are really proud of Amy. It is a really nice thing to do and we are amazed that she has raised so much money.

“We are really grateful for the support given by friends and family.

“You would not get many children her age going out and doing something about that.”

Amy has not had her blonde locks cut for some time but wanted to do something for charity after learning of her grandmother’s diagnosis in May.

She went along to the Hair Boutique in Lynn Road, Gorefield, on August 1 to have her hair cut.

She also ran a charity raffle before the school holidays. Prizes were donated by Hair Boutique and Choye Par Sharon.
