Ella Taylor has donated her hair to the Little Princess Trust, which makes wigs for children who have lost their hair through cancer treatment.

“I thought this would be a nice thing to do for charity,” said Ella. “The minimum donation to the Trust is seven inches of hair, but mine was 12 inches, so I hope this will make a huge difference to a little girl somewhere wanting a wig.”

The wigs cost £350-400 to produce and Ella has beat her target of £500 to raise £800 through sponsorship.

“Thank you to everyone who has supported me and to hairdresser Natalie Chapman who donated her time and talent,” said Ella.
