Layla Roper has had her waist-length hair cut – after hearing about a little girl who had gone bald undergoing cancer treatment.
She wanted to help, so Layla and her mother Colleen found out about a charity that provides real hair wigs to children at no cost to their families and offered to donate her hair.
Layla, who attends Hunstanton Infant School, went to Salon 63 in Hunstanton where Emma cut off her ponytail.
Mrs Roper said: “I thought I was going to be upset, but I think it was because she is donating it to the Little Princesses Trust that I’ve felt really positive about letting her have it cut so short.
“To Layla it is only hair and it will soon grow back but to those that will have a wig because of Layla it means so much more.”
And father John-Henry Roper said: “We are extremely proud of Layla for choosing to donate her ponytail to such a worthwhile cause.”
Layla, raised sponsorship of £350 to pay for making the wig, said: “It would be good if other people donated their ponytails if they have a big haircut. I love my new hairstyle, it is easier for me to brush myself and feels very swishy.”
