Abigail Allen, 10, donated her seven inch plait to the Little Princess Trust, who make wigs for sick children.

She said: “I wanted to do something to help a worthwhile cause and was really excited to have my hair cut off.

“It has been sent to the Little Princess Trust who make wigs to give to children with cancer who lose their hair.”

Abigail said sponsors can still give to her appeal.

“Please sponsor me as little or as much as you can,” she added.

Her mother, Hayley, said her daughter loves her new look and has helped raise hundreds of pounds for charity too.

“We are very proud of Abigail and would like to thank everybody who has sponsored her,” she said.
