A 10 year old March girl raised more than £1,300 for Macmillan Cancer Support after she had her long locks cropped when she was inspired by a national brave the shave campaign.
Leah Connolly brought in the massive total, which is still climbing, after she set up stall within the town’s Tesco store to have her hair cut.
Her hair is being donated to the Little Princess Trust to make a wig for children who have lost theirs through cancer.
Her mum Tina Webb said: “She was just going have a short style but she was not happy with that so went shorter - she’s been determined from the beginning to have it all off and she loves it.
“Her total is £1328.27 but I know there’s a few friends that have said they will be sponsoring her on payday, so hopefully more to come!”

Tina said: “She has done amazing and I’m glad she wants to carry on especially for GOSH as without them she wouldn’t be here today.”
