A SEVEN year old youngster nicknamed by her family after the long-haired princess, ‘Rapunzel’ has chopped off her flowing locks to raise funds for a children’s hair loss charity.
Amelie Johnston, a pupil at St. Thomas’ school in Lydiate, had 16 inches cut off her waist-length hair which she has donated to the Little Princess Trust.
The charity turns donated hair into wigs for children with hair loss from cancer. Amelie has already raised donations of £1,150 on online donations page Just Giving.
Her mum, Michelle, said: “I am so proud of her. She always puts others before herself and is keen to help when and where she can.
“When a child loses their hair to cancer, the Little Princess Trust provide a free, real hair wig to help.”
