Young girl from Fremington facing the chop for Little Princess Trust

A brave Fremington girl is going under the scissors for charity.

Amy Hulland, 11, will be donating seven inches of her hair to the Little Princess Trust, a charity which makes wigs for girls who have lost their hair during cancer treatment.

"I'm not really sure how I feel about it yet - I'm quite nervous," said Amy. "I think it's a good thing to do, though, and it would help a lot of people if more people did it."

It's a cause which is close to the family's heart - Amy's granddad died of cancer and, with her mum, she recently completed the Race for Life.

Amy, who will start at Park Community School in September after finishing at Newport Primary School, will face the chop on August 24 at Headlines in Fremington.

Mum Bridget said she was very proud of her little girl.

"I never thought I would see the day when she got her hair cut - she really loves her hair," she said. "But to see it going to a good cause will make it all worthwhile."

Amy has already raised £100 for the charity, too, which will help towards the £350 cost of making each wig.
