A mum and daughter from Sandy will be cutting their hair to donate it to the Little Princess Trust on Saturday, October 5.

Roxanne Smith, 41, and her 10-year-old daughter Keris, are organising a charity hair chop and tea party at the Sandy Jenkins pavilion, to raise money for the charity.

The pair will be donating their hair and are also hoping to raise £550.

Roxanne said: "The date is the anniversary of my mum passing away so we wanted to turn what will be a sad day for us, into a day to do something special.

"I have been growing my hair for eight years and the hairdresser said we should be able to donate about 10-12 inches and Keris will be donating about eight inches, but it could be more as she is going a shorter than I am.

"We are hoping to raise £550 because this is what it costs to make a wig from start to delivery.

"A hairdresser, Bex Wilder, will be cutting our hair, she is donating her time to do the hair cuts.

"The Little Princess Trust is a great cause and helps so many people who lose their hair through cancer or other illnesses.

"We have got about £310 which is amazing as we haven't had it cut off yet, I joked with my daughter that we have to go through with it now."

The Little Princess Trust supplies the best real-hair wigs, free of charge, to children and young people up to the age of 24, who have lost their hair through cancer treatment or other illnesses.
