Little Bethany Hancock used her birthday party as a perfect place to let her hair down - literally.

The youngster had a roller skating party and afterwards, while still at the venue, had her hair cut short by hairdresser Emma Hunt, to make a wig for the Little Princess Trust.

The roller skating fan decided to combine her birthday with a chance to raise awareness and money for the charity which makes wigs for young people who have lost their hair through chemotherapy treatment.

Her mum Kerri Hancock said the event had been a great success and said a big thankyou to Skaters at Walpole Highway for supporting the fund raising.
