A FIVE-YEAR-OLD girl from Cam has braved a haircut to raise money for charity.

Taylor Ford, from Cam Woodfields Infant School, had never wanted her hair cut before, but braved the snip on June 26.

Her hair was cut by Charlene Herbert, and donated to The Little Princess Trust.

The charity makes wigs out of real hair for young people suffering hair loss as a result of cancer treatement or other conditions.

Originally planning to have just seven or eight inches removed, Taylor went all out and had 12 inches cut off.

Taylor also had a fundraising target of £150, as this is the cost of fitting and styling one of the wigs, but has so far raised more than £400.

Mum Debbie said: "My daughter had never wanted to cut her hair apart from a little trim to keep it in great condition to then have most of it cut off in just a few snips.

"We spoke about how unfortunately some people do not have such lovely hair as hers due to being poorly and sometime loose their hair due to the illness or treatment they receive.

"Taylor decided she would like to donate her hair to help somebody who is unfortunately poorly feel a little bit more like themselves at a very hard time in their life.

"Taylor really wants to help this great charity and as she said ‘I can always grow it again."
