A 10-year-old schoolgirl has raised more than £700 for young cancer patients after having her long locks chopped.
Bryony Morters, who attends Holly Meadows School at Pott Row, had 12-inches cut off her hair after growing it for two years to help the Little Princess Trust.
The hair has been donated to the charity, which provides real hair wigs to children and young people who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment or have experienced the devastating effects of hair loss.
Each wig costs £550 to make and the charity also funds research into better treatments for childhood cancers.
So far, Bryony has raised £755 from her hair cut and her family, parents Julie and Alan Morters and brother Daniel, 13, are “super proud” of her.
Mrs Morters, of Congham, said: “She always wanted to donate and they stopped taking minimum seven inches so Bryony had to grow it for another two years to get it long enough so it was not left too short.
“Our friend Linda Brown had her hair donated and her head shaved which inspired her to help children with cancer needing wigs. I am super proud of her at such a young age wanting to help others who were less fortunate than her.”
Bryony loves her new look which is easier to manage. She said her daughter wanted to have the charity chop before moving on to high school in September.
Bryony’s hair was cut by Hair By Donna at Roydon and Mrs Morters said: “We are very grateful for all the donations received.”
