Well done to Anabel and Amelia who grew and cut their long locks in aid of the Little Princess Trust a charity which provides wigs made from real human hair to children suffering hair loss and funds vital research into childhood cancers.
The girls were inspired to support the charity after Amelia’s younger sister, Phoebe, had donated her locks.
“It was quite scary at first because I’ve had long hair all my life. But every time I thought about it, I thought about the significance of what I was doing and now I’m really proud of it.” – Anabel
“It feels literally like this massive weight has been cut off your shoulders. I’d heard about the Little Princess Trust, but then I finally decided to do it after Phoebe had done it. I don’t think we could have done it without support for each other. It’s nice to feel that you’ve done something for somebody else and they will really benefit from it.” – Amelia
