A six year-old Littleham girl patiently put off cutting her locks until they were long enough to donate to the Little Princess Trust.

Leah Robson, 6, underwent her ‘big chop’ on Thursday, July 19, losing around 12 - 13 inches of hair.

This was donated to the Little Princess Trust, which provides wigs for children suffering hair loss as a result of cancer treatments or other illnesses.

Leah had wanted her hair cut for some time, but agreed to keep growing it until it met the trust’s minimum length requirement.

Her mum, Claire, said: “I think she’s really brave and I’m really proud; she’s worked hard for it and she’s been very patient.”

Leah ‘absolutely loves’ her new hairdo, which was cut by Vanessa, at VLHair. As well as donating her locks, Leah and her family have raised £225 via a JustGiving page. People who would like to make a donation can visit https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/leah-robson18
