Inspiring youngster, Charlotte Tennant, has had her long locks chopped short in order to donate the hair to a cancer charity who provide real hair wigs to children undergoing chemotherapy.
Charlotte told her parents: “I want to donate my hair to make a wig for someone who has cancer, as my dad has had cancer, but is getting better now, so sending my hair is very important to me.”
Charlotte, of Javea, had her 12-inch plait cut and sent to the Little Princess charity in the UK who collect the hair for manufacture, through Cancer Care.
Charlotte has also raised €600 for the children through friends at her school, The Lady Elizabeth school, her local Karate Club, family and friends.
The Little Princess Trust explains that: “We provide real hair wigs, free of charge, to boys and girls across the UK and Ireland that have lost their own hair through cancer treatment.
“As a result of treatment for cancer, most children will suffer hair loss as a side effect. Some boys and girls cope remarkably well but for others this can be very upsetting.”
