A schoolgirl’s not so hair-brained scheme has benefited a charity which provides wigs to poorly children.

Minster Primary pupil Emma Walker’s grew to below her waist after she went for about five years without a trim.

Then the 10-year-old, of Marina Drive, Minster, heard about The Little Princess Trust.

The organisation makes hair pieces using real locks for children who have lost their own through cancer treatment.

Emma thought she would give up some of hers and also raised £160 through sponsorship in the process.

Hairdresser Elisha Tullett cut her tresses by 10 inches, to just above her shoulders, last week for free and also gave a donation.

Mum Kelly Walker said: “We are very proud of her. It is quite a good trait to have in someone of her age.

“She was a little unsure [about her new look] at first. It’s a massive difference from having such long hair to having it cut short in one fell swoop.

“But when her friends saw her at school it gave her a bit more confidence and now she’s really pleased with it.”
