A MOTHER from Herne Bay has spoken about how proud she is of her 6-year-old girl who has cut 10 inches of her hair to raise money for a cancer charity.
Olivia Lee has followed through with her plan to donate her hair to the Little Princess Trust, which creates wigs for children who undergo cancer treatments.
The special event took place last Saturday 6 February when Maxine Broomfield cut ten inches of Olivia’s hair. Previously, the Herne Bay girl called on to others to donate money for another wig.
After the haircut, mum Sarah Pimbley said: “I’m very proud of her and we’ve gone way beyond the target of £350.
“We’re up to £575 and it would be good if could round that up top £600.”
Speaking about her new haircut, Olivia said: “I feel more grown up with shorter hair.”
Sarah agreed with Olivia. She said: “We likes her new style and says it makes her look more grown up.
”And she doesn’t cry any more that I’m brushing her knotted hair.”
