It was hair today, gone tomorrow for these kind-hearted sisters – all for a good cause.
The selfless pair had their long locks chopped off to help youngsters with cancer.
It was the second time eight-year-old Hope Ryall-Thurlow had donated her hair to the Little Princess Trust.
And the Sacred Heart Primary School pupil’s generosity inspired her big sister, 13-year-old Penny, to do the same this time around too.
The 9ins of hair Hope had cut and 11ins Penny had chopped off has been donated to the charity, which provides real hair wigs to boys and girls across the UK who have sadly lost their own hair through cancer treatment.
Proud mum Lucy, from Bispham, said she was impressed by the girls’ thoughtfulness.
“Hope decided she would have her hair cut – it was actually her first ever hair cut – when she was just six years old to donate to the charity.
“Two year later, she decided her hair was long enough to donate again.
“She has been insistent since her first haircut this would be a regular routine.
“I wasn’t convinced she would stick to it, but she was adamant.
“This time around though, in the middle of her haircut – at Bianca Monique salon in Cleveleys – her older sister Penny decided, watching her sister, she would donate too.
“We have often wound Penny up, saying her hair would be lovely to donate. She had amazingly long hair.
“We are all really proud both the girls have donated their hair to help children who are less fortunate than themselves.”
