A five-year old girl from Braintree is hoping to donate her hair to a charity that makes wigs for childhood cancer sufferers.

Not only will Evie Thomson be cutting off her hair for the Little Princess Trust, she also wants to raise the £350 it will cost to transform her locks into a hairpiece.

Mum Dawn, 25, said: “It is due a cut and I suggested to her to give her hair to a good cause, because we have a family member who has had cancer.

“Evie is all for it, she is not nervous at all and is quite happy to go ahead with it.

“She comes with me when I give blood and she asks why, so she understands that there are sick children and adults who do not have hair.”

The little girl’s thoughtful move follows that of Kathleen Fisher, eight, also from Braintree, who chose to donate her hair to the Little Princess Trust after her mum was diagnosed with breast cancer last October.
