A March family will be doing its bit to raise money for the Little Princess Trust later this month.
Wendy Ransome and her granddaughters Ebonie and Rowan Beecham, aged nine and five respectively, will be having their hair cut at a March salon on October 19.
The charity, which was launched in 2006 by the parents of Hannah Tarplee, provides wigs of real hair for youngsters undergoing cancer treatment.
Mrs Ransome and her granddaughters will not only be sending off their hair to the charity but are also fundraising.
They have been inspired by the work of the charity.
Mrs Ransome said: “I am so lucky that my grandchildren are healthy – but there are so many youngsters out there who are going through a difficult time and we want to put a smile back on their faces.
“It costs £350 to make each wig and we are hoping people will support us.
“I am proud of the girls for wanting to help.”

- The North Brink Practice in Wisbech is holding fundraising coffee mornings in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust alongside its annual Saturday flu clinics.
Staff will be volunteering their time and culinary skills for the occasion, by baking up a whole host of cakes and treats for patients to enjoy.
The clinics will be held between 8.30am and noon this Saturday, and on October 10 and 17.
The event has been well supported in the past, with generous patients helping to raise an average of £800 each year.
In 2013, funds were donated to Macmillan Cancer Support and last year they went to the Macmillan and Hudson Palliative Care Centre.
Patients eligible for the free flu vaccine can book their appointment by contacting the surgery on 01945 660460.
