A six-year-old girl has made the selfless and bold decision to cut her hair for the very first time – all in the name of charity.
Treales CofE Primary pupil Eliza Parkinson is donating her hair to the Little Princess Trust which provides real-hair wigs to boys and girls across the UK that have sadly lost their own hair through cancer treatment.
Her mother, Sophie Parkinson, says that this has been a long time in the making, after her daughter first saw an advert back in October.
Sophie said: “She first said the idea in October to me, so I waited for a while to make sure she definitely wanted to do it before I gave it the go-ahead.
“It’s a lovely thing for her to do, it’s come out of the blue and it certainly has taken me by surprise as she has never had her hair cut before!
“It’s quite a big thing for a six-year-old girl to do.”
Headteacher of Treales Church Of England Primary School, Jonathon Weeden, said: “We are all extremely proud of Eliza and her incredible decision to cut her wonderful hair in order to help others who are less fortunate than her.
“It is very much in keeping with the Christian ethos of our school and is, I think, an example to us all.”
