The Little Princess Trust makes wigs free of charge for children who have lost their hair through illness.


The salon kindly agreed to cut Emily's hair free of charge for the good cause, and Emily also raised over £300.


Samantha Alderman-Froggatt, Emily's stepmum said: “We were watching a TV show about children with cancer, and Emily was so intrigued she decided she wanted to have her hair cut to help them.


“She’s always had long hair, so I kept asking her if she was really sure, but she was determined to do it.

“Emily loves her hair, she’s buzzing about it!”
