A Whittlesey girl is preparing to cut a whopping 20 inches off her hair in order to raise money for charity.

Millie Cousins, 11, will undergo the hair-raising transformation on the 26th November during a school assembly at Park Lane Primary School in Whittlesey.

Millie, who prides herself on her long locks, will donate her hair to the Little Princess Trust, a charity which provides real-hair wigs, free of charge, to boys and girls that have lost their own hair through cancer treatment and other illnesses. The trust has given away over 2,000 wigs since its inception in 2006.

The 11-year-old has also smashed her fundraising target of £350 after raising over £500 with over a month to go until the event.
