Teenager, Keira Evans, 13, had her hair cut off at a March hairdressing salon to make wig for a children’s cancer charity,

Keira and her mother Joanne Evans joined forces with Claire’s Hairdresser in Burrowmoor Road in a bid to raise £350 for the Little Princess Trust.

Her mum Joanne said: “My friend’s son is battling with cancer. It’s heart breaking to see such a beautiful little boy be so poorly, yet he’s always smiling.”

Keira had her hair measured and weighed. It was then placed into a food bag to keep clean before being sent to The Princess Trust to go to China.

It takes five hair donations to make one wig.
