Having heard about the Little Princess Trust while watching Children in Need on TV, ten-year-old Kyra Dyer-Jackman - from Lowestoft - was determined to help and begun fundraising for the charity, who provide real hair wigs to girls and boys whose lives have been transformed by illness.

Her seven-year-old brother, Bobby, was also keen to play a part and invited friends to a tea party to raise money.

Kyra had ten inches of hair cut on Tuesday, April 17, before the thoughtful duo hosted a 'tea and tiara party' at their house two days later - the food for which was baked by their 17-year-old sister, Taylor.

Their mother, Nikki Dyer-Jackman, said: 'I'm very proud of the kids for their fundraising. Bobby came up with the tea party as he hasn't quite got enough hair to be cut! It went really well and they raised £50.'
