For lots of children around the UK and Ireland, hair loss as a result of cancer treatment and other illnesses can be devastating.
So when 10-year-old Charlotte Saunders from Lowestoft heard about The Little Princess Trust, a charity which provides free real hair wigs to girls and boys affected by illness, she decided to donate some of her extremely long hair.
Her family also set up a fundraising page for people to sponsor the effort and raised £732.50.
On November 22, Charlotte had 12 inches of hair cut off, which will be sent to the charity to be made into a wig, along with the money that has been raised.
Parents Bev and Mark Saunders said: 'Charlotte loves her new look; we are very proud of her for doing this and for being so kind & thoughtful.'
