It was Ava-Grace, 6, who came up with the idea to also raise money for the charity. So far she has collected £619.

Her mother Stephanie, said: “I am extremely proud of my daughter.

“She’s been asking me for over a year if she can donate her hair to help make wigs for children, but I haven’t wanted to rush it as she is so young, I thought she may change her mind.”

The Falconer’s Hill Infant School pupil pursauded her mum to let her have the chop.

Stephanie added: “She has always been very proud of her hair and this is a big sacrifice for her but it is somthing she is determined to do to help other children.”
