Brave Chloe Rees had her beautiful long locks cut off to help children with cancer.

She donated her tresses to make wigs for children who have lost their hair due to harsh chemotherapy.

Chloe also raised £750 for the Little Princess Trust.

She said: “I’m very pleased.

“I wasn’t expecting to raised so much money and there have been so many generous people in Rugby who have donated.”

She said she chose the Little Princess Trust because of the great work they do.

Chloe, who lives in Rugby and had her hair cut at Martanne, said: “It’s bad enough suffering with cancer and losing your hair as an adult but as a child it must be devastating.

“They don’t feel normal without hair and can get subjected to bullying. However, this charity gives them that little bit of freedom and confidence back.”

She said with the wigs being specially made and measured for children they can run around and be care-free without worrying.

Chloe said: “I would like to thank Martanne for their support and Steers Printing in Rugby who offered great support by donating a T-shirt free of charge so that I could advertise my event.”
