An 11-year-old Littleport girl has almost doubled her fundraising target of £250 by braving the shave and donating her hair to the Little Princess Trust.
Jorja Rodgers lost her locks for the charity, which provides real-hair wigs to children who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment and other illnesses, at Karen Booth’s salon, Bizzie Lizzie’s, on Saturday.
“Her hair transformed from a long plait into a stylish pixie crop,” said Jorja’s mum, Julie Double, who supported her throughout the chop.
“Thanks to Karen for agreeing to do this cut, and to everyone who has donated so far. It means so much.”
Jorja has raised £492 so far for the Little Princess Trust, thanks to donations and sponsorship ahead of the haircut.
She is also hoping that the shave will go towards getting her Scouts fundraiser badge.
