A schoolgirl from Stevenage has given up 11 inches of her blonde locks to help children who have lost their hair to sickness – and raised over £375.50 for cancer to boot.
Skye Downie-Webb, who’s 10 and in Woolenwick Junior School’s Ruby Class, was inspired by her nan, who underwent chemotherapy and eventually got better. She had her hair cut at Fringe Benefits in The Arcade, Hitchin.
The hair was donated to the Little Princess Trust, which provides wigs and hairpieces to children who suffer hair loss due to cancer treatment, and the cash went to Cancer Research UK.
“Skye saw stories of other little girls getting their heads shaved for cancer, and she wanted to do it herself,” said mum Lucie Webb.
“It went great. She’s had her hair cut into a pixie bob.
