Six-year-old Aimee Gowers had nine inches of her hair cut off for charity – after seeing a girl with no hair.
Aimee, who attends Whittlefield Primary School, has donated her hair to the Little Princess Trust which provides real-hair wigs to boys and girls that have lost their own hair through cancer treatment and other illnesses
“I’m so proud of her,” said mum Natalie. “Aimee saw a little girl with no hair and we explained to her that the little girl had cancer and the treatment meant she lost her hair.
“We then told her how people donate their hair to make special princess wigs and she was adamant it’s what she wanted to do.
“I allowed her months to think things over and every day she asked if she could donate her hair to make a little girl feel like a princess again so how could I say no?”
Aimee had her hair cut at Ambiance Hair on Hall Street and Natalie admitted: “I cried when it was cut off but she loves it.
I allowed her months to think things over and every day she asked if she could donate her hair to make a little girl feel like a princess againMum
“We are also raising money as the average wig costs £350 to make once they have the hair, so we’re raising funds to try and get one full wig done.”
