When the time came for nine-year-old Shelby-Brooke Moore to go for a normal haircut, she decided it would be a nice idea to donate it to youngsters less fortunate than herself.

Her thoughtfulness arose after hearing about the Little Princess Trust, who provide real hair wigs to girls and boys affected by hair loss as a result of their illnesses.

Shelby, who lives in Lowestoft, raised as much money as possible prior to finally having her long hair cut on February 15.

Her mother, Sally-Anne Goldsmith, said: 'Shelby was very hyperactive and excited about the haircut, but at the hairdressers she froze at the thought of losing all that hair. However, she went through with it in the end and had two plaits cut off.
