To most people having a good haircut is just an everyday thing, but the Sheringham youngster loved her long hair.

She had 12 inches of her hair cut to help the Little Princess Trust, which provides wigs and hairpieces for children who suffer hair loss due to cancer treatment.

While this alone was an amazing thing to do, Skye also raised over £500 for the charity, which ensures that the trust doesn't have to pay for the wig to be made.

Skye said: 'I wanted to do this for a year and finally got the okay from my parents.

'I saw an advert for children with cancer and they had no hair. I asked my mum why, and she told me it's from chemotherapy. So ever since then I wanted to help just one child have hair again, and show that we can help by doing something as little as have a haircut.'
