AN 11-year-old girl will have her long hair cut at her school tomorrow, Friday, to help other children less fortunate than her.

Keira Headford’s mum Jackie was diagnosed with breast cancer in February and lost her hair in April after having chemotherapy.

This inspired the Tyldesley Primary School pupil to help a cause that could make use of her long locks of hair, which grows down to her waist.

The hair will be sent to the Little Princess Trust, a charity which makes wigs for children who are bald due to chemotherapy treatment.

Mum-of-three Jackie, 48, said: "When I started losing my hair Keira wanted to do something to help and then she said she did not realise how many children had lost their hair too.

"She is a little star. Keira has always had lovely, long hair and I said that she doesn't have to get her hair cut but she has been adamant that she wants to do it."

Jackie has also praised Keira's teacher Janet Shorrock for organising the event.

Keira has raised around £1,100 with funds going to the trust and the Royal Bolton Hospital’s breast unit.
