A KIND-HEARTED Woodrow girl had her locks chopped off to create a wig for a child undergoing cancer treatment.

Millie Tibbetts decided to face the chop after reading a newspaper story on holiday about a girl who had lost her hair through cancer treatment.

At least seven inches were taken off which will now be sent on to the Little Princess Trust which makes wigs for those who have suffered hair loss due to radiotherapy and chemotherapy.

The brave seven-year-old said: "I wanted to do it so I could help people with cancer. When I told my friend they didn't want me to cut my hair at first, but everyone has said it is a nice thing to do."

Her mother Chez said the Roman Way First School pupil had been begging her since August but she was worried she was not old enough at first.

"This is something she really wanted to do and I'm just so proud of her. I spoke to Lyndsey at Aspire because I went to school with her and she got the ball rolling."

Lyndsey Banner, owner of Aspire at The Steps, then asked customers to donate towards the cause and a total of £400 has been raised so far and will go towards the cost of making the wig.

She said: "I didn't want to do it at first because she has such beautiful hair but how could you say no to such a good cause."
