Charitable eight year old Keira Thomasson has donated an incredible eight inches of her hair to poorly children.
Keira had the idea for her to brave visit to the hairdressers in Bolton after seeing another young girl donate her hair to The Little Princess Trust on television.
The charity helps children who have lost their hair due to alopecia or cancer treatments. The hair is used for wigs that are donated to the ill youngsters.
Keira said: “I just love my hair so much I never want to get it cut. I wanted to do it because my Uncle Dennis died of cancer. I had my hair cut for charity in a bob with a side fringe.
“Having a wig will make people feel like that they have their own hair back.
“I was just sat cuddling my fox teddy because I was so nervous thinking about what I’d look like. I think it looks really nice and people have said I look older.”
Her hair was cut by Melissa Hamilton from the Brown Cow salon free of charge.
Keira had to check with her granddad, Sam Allred, before the chop as he always says that little girls should have long hair.
Keira’s mum Carlina Thomasson also helped the charity by having 10 inches cut off her hair.
Mrs Thomasson said: “Keira wants to help others all of the time. Every morning she has been asking me how much she has raised. She just wants to help millions of people.”
Keira has so far managed to raise £600 for the cause. Her school’s holiday club held a party in her honour to celebrate her kind gesture.
