Ava Mear has raised more than £280 for the charity, which provides real hair wigs for children with hair loss.

Her mum Amy said: "Ava had asked me several times if she could have her haircut short.

"I wasn't too sure about her having it done.

"However, she asked again and said could she have her haircut and donate it to The Little Princess Trust and also raise some money for them.
