Kind-hearted Hannah helps charity by losing long locks

IT was a case of hair today, gone tomorrow for Hannah Davis.

The 10-year-old had about eight inches of her golden locks cut off at Albion House Hairdressers in her home village of Longhorsley in aid of the Little Princess Trust, which provides wigs for youngsters who lose their hair during cancer treatment.

As well as donating her tresses, the Dr Thomlinson Middle School, Rothbury, pupil has so far collected more than £550 for the charity. The cost of making a wig is £350.

The idea to do the big haircut came after her cousin Ellen did a similar fund-raiser earlier this year.

Hannah’s mum Kirstine said: “The reaction to the cut has been amazing from her friends, family and fellow pupils.

“We’re very proud of her as she’s also raised a lot of money to go with the hair donation. She’s not used to being the centre of attention, but it’s typical Hannah that she doesn’t think it’s a big deal.

“To her, it’s just hair and it’s not as important as many other things.”
