Two sisters have had their long locks chopped so they can donate their hair to a charity that makes wigs for children and young people with hair loss.
Annie Parry, five, and her sister Katelyn, eight, are pupils at Stevenage's Peartree Spring Primary School and have donated their hair to the Little Princess Trust.
Annie, who had 10 inches of hair cut off, said: "I wanted to get my hair cut for children who are really poorly, so they can have some nice hair."
Katelyn, who had 11 inches cut off, added: "I wanted my hair cut for the Little Princess Trust because I want a very ill child without hair to have a nice wig."
Their mum, Charlotte, said: "Our family is so proud of their selfless decision to have their hair cut for such a good cause.
