A nine-year-old girl has cut her long locks to help make wigs for children with cancer.

Briony Dew, from Bilton, had the chop on Tuesday at Hair Boutique in Heritage Close, Cawston.

Proud mum Paula said: “Briony had hair down to her bottom and although it was lovely, it was difficult for her to maintain. It’s great that her haircut will be more practical for her and help other people at the same time.”

Briony’s hair will be donated to The Little Princess Trust, a charity that provides real hair wigs for children with cancer and other illnesses.

It was launched in 2006 and has helped thousands of children who have lost their hair through cancer treatment and conditions.
