Fifteen-year-old Evie Jackson is planning to cut off twelve inches of her hair in order to raise £350 for charity.
The Little Princess Trust provides real hair wigs to children free of charge across the UK and Ireland, intended for those who have sadly lost their own hair due to cancer treatments and other illnesses.
Evie, from Loddon, is hoping to raise £350 for the trust by chopping off 12 inches of her own long brunette locks, This is what it costs the charity to make one of the real hair wigs.
On why she's decided to do this, Evie said: 'I couldn't even begin to imagine how self conscious and anxious I would feel if I lost all my hair due to an illness. Losing all my hair uncontrollably would leave me feeling uncomfortable to even step outside, or be seen.
'This is exactly why I am going to be donating my hair to The Little Princess Trust. I'd love to help a child suffering from an illness such as cancer, or alopecia, to make them feel a little better.' Evie added.
