A boy from Swaffham is shaving his golden locks to help raise money for charity.

Aiden Tigue is donating his hair to the Little Princess Trust in memory of his grandmother Sandra Tigue who died of cancer.

The 11-year-old is hoping to raise £340 as well as donating his hair which is used by the charity to make wigs for those who have lost their hair going through treatment for cancer.

The youngster has been growing his hair out for the past three years and his friends do not believe he would go through with it.

He said: 'Hopefully it will go quite well, my hair is always in my face so I need to get rid of it. All my friends keep on thinking I'm lying as they didn't think I was going to cut it and my teachers said they won't recognise me.'
