A nine-year-old girl has donated her own hair to a charity that makes wigs for children who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment.
Amie Woods, who lives in Stevenage and is a pupil at Camps Hill Primary School, has had her long hair chopped off and donated to the Little Princess Trust, which makes real hair wigs free of charge for children and young adults who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy.
Amie’s mum, Naomi, said: “When she heard about the Little Princess Trust she knew she wanted to give her hair to children who had lost their own.
“She had it cut at Lock 45 in Stevenage and, as well as donating her hair, has raised almost £400 for the charity.
“Amie is very kind and hates seeing anyone upset, so it didn’t surprise me that she wanted to do this to make others happy.
