A young girl has had her hair cut for the first time to raise money for charity.

11-year-old Amber Moore, from Wheatley Hills, has raised £555 for Little Princess Trust and also donated her hair to them.

The charity provides real-hair wigs to children across the country that have lost their own hair through cancer treatment.

On her JustGiving charity webpage, Amber said: “It is actually good for me as it makes me feel very happy and proud, and also my parents always wanted me to have short hair for years since my hair is very long and thick so it will feel a lot lighter on my head.

“I hope to raise lots of money for cancer as it is worrying to be that ill, so I’m very exited to find out about who will get my hair in a wig.”

The year seven Danum Academy pupil had never had a proper hair cut before and had only ever had her long, blonde curly locks trimmed.

Proud dad Paul Moore said: “Amber wanted to do this because she wanted to make poorly girls feel happy again.

“She wanted to get it cut anyway, but she wanted it to mean something and she wanted somebody to benefit from it.

“She felt good doing something for somebody else.”

Amber had her hair cut at Eclipz, Beckett Road.
