March schoolgirl faces the chop in the name of charity

A primary schoolgirl has faced the chop to raise money for a charity that helps sick children.

Bethany Graves, who attends Westwood School in March, decided she wanted to have her hair cut short for the first time since she was a baby.

The seven-year-old decided to donate her long blonde locks to the Little Princess Trust, which provides real hair wigs, free of charge to children and young people who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment or other conditions such as alopecia.

She has currently raised £420 and underwent the chop earlier this month, having 10.5 inches cut off at A’Diva hairdressers in March.

Bethany said that since she’s had her haircut she feels more confident and is really excited some other child will be wearing her hair.

Bethany’s hair was over 20 inches long, blonde and curly.

She has had trims throughout the years but decided at the age of seven she was ready for a change.

Bethany was aware of children who are poorly and lose their hair and wanted to donate her beautiful locks to The Little Princess Trust.

The charity is also one of the largest funders of childhood cancer research in the UK.

The Little Princess Trust relies solely on the generosity of its wonderful supporters who help the charity give hair and hope to so many children and young people with cancer each year.

The cost of making one wig is £550, so Bethany has set that as her target on her Justgiving page.

With Bethany’s hair and the donations/sponsorship she raises she is hoping to provide a wig to a young person with cancer.
