A schoolgirl from Northampton agreed to have her long locks shorn to raise money for a charity that provides wigs for children with cancer.

After hearing about Little Princess Trust, which helps children cope with their hair loss, Hannah Costello, ten, felt lucky to have shoulder-length hair.

She agreed to have her locks chopped and wants to hit her target of £300, which is the cost of one wig.

Hannah said: “Around the world, there are children and adults who have hair loss; then there is me.

“When I hear, see or think of this, I know that I need to help.

“Having a wig would make them feel more confident and proud about themselves.”
