An East Hunsbury schoolgirl inspired by the plight of child cancer patients is to donate her long locks to charity .

Anna-Lei Shelswell watched a video of a little girl receiving a wig made by The Little Princess Trust and wanted to help children affected by cancer.

The nine-year-old who can sit on her hair, will face the chop on Sunday February 26 in front of her mum Samantha, dad Dean and brother Ashton and friends.

Anna-Lei said: “As I’ve got long hair, it made me think how happy it would make me someone else if I was to donate it.”
