A “really brave” Northampton eight-year-old has had nine inches of her locks chopped off to help make a wig for a child with cancer - for the second time.

Rosie Oya from Duston grew her hair for two years so she would be able to donate a substantial quantity to the Little Princess Trust.

Rosie faced the chop at the Daniel Granger Salon in Northampton by hairdresser Adam Haines - and he even let her cut off a bit.

Her mum Victoria Oya said: “The staff said she was really brave.

“What’s special is it is the second time Rosie has donated hair - she raised £350 for the Little Princess Trust in 2013.

“When asked why she would like to do this, she said, ‘because some kids don’t have as much hair as me’. It’s her charity Christmas gift.

“I am overwhelmed by Rosie’s big heart.”
