Lowestoft girl’s locks face the chop

HAIR TODAY.... Like most 11-year-olds, Skye Graham is proud of her long, flowing hair.

But the kind-hearted Lowestoft youngster is facing the chop for charity.

Skye will be heading to the Lexi K Hair Salon, in All Saints Road, Pakefield, on Thursday, to have her 22-inch locks cut. The former Pakefield Primary School pupil is raising money for the Little Princess Trust, which provides free real-hair wigs to youngsters in Britain and Ireland who have lost their hair through cancer.

As well as giving her own hair to the Hereford-based charity, Skye hopes to raise about �350 in sponsorship.

Skye said: 'I do like having my hair long, but I did want to have it cut. Then I thought I'd also be able to help the trust by having my haircut.'

Skye's mother Caroline Hallsworth, 44, will be there to watch the hairdresser in action – and she admitted: 'I will be sad to see her hair go. I do like it long. She has never had a proper haircut since she was tiny.

'But I think it is great she is helping children with cancer by supporting the Little Princess Trust.'
