A little girl known as the ‘big heart’ in her family because of her charitable efforts and caring nature has had her long locks cut off to be donated to a children’s cancer charity.
Amber Duncan, 8, had shown no desire to have her hair cut short until she saw a Youtube video of the Little Princess Trust.
Mum Stacey, 35, from Stevenage, said: “Amber is so caring – at Christmas she donated two charity boxes to the homeless, she is always thinking of others.
She underwent the chop at Lyn Ward’s salon at The Oval.
“I was a little bit nervous for her to go ahead, but it’s her hair and I couldn’t say no when it’s for such a good cause.”

Amber – the second youngest of six children – also passed a sponsorship form around her school, The Giles Infants School on Durham Road, and raised £100 for the charity which makes wigs for children undergoing cancer treatment. “She told all her friends and teachers and everyone backed her 100 per cent,” Stacey added.
