A 10-year-old girl is getting 11 inches of her hair cut off and donating it to The Little Princess Trust.

Hannah Milligan, of Stewkley, decided to cut her hair, give it to the charity and raise money for them.



The Little Princess Trust use donated human hair to make wigs for children suffering hair loss as a result of cancer treatment and conditions like alopecia.

The St Michaels School pupil said: “I thought that my hair was just going to go in the bin otherwise and that if I could give it to charity I would.

“Each wig costs up to £350 to buy and the charity gives them free to children. I decided that I would ask people to sponsor me to have it cut to see if I could help the charity a but more.

“Mum says I should be really proud of myself but I am more proud of the people who have donated money to the charity, having my hair cut is not going to hurt me at all and I’m just really pleased that someone in need can benefit from it.”

Allison Milligan, Hannah’s mum, said: “I’m very proud of Hannah, so far she has raised £444, it’s far exceeded all our expectations.

“I thrilled that Hannah has embraced this idea and am so proud of her willingness to support a charity like the Little Princess Trust.”

She will be getting her cut at Top Cutz on Sunday, November 23. To donate, visit:
