A six-year-old schoolgirl from Wymington got the chop to help out a charity which makes wigs for children suffering from cancer.

Amelia George, a pupil at St Lawrence School in the village, spent several months growing her hair so she could donate it to the Little Princess Trust.

When her hair was long enough, Amelia went to Je m’appelle Belle in Rushden where 11 inches of her long locks were cut off.

Amelia’s mum, Amy, said: “I’m so proud of Amelia, this was her own idea. She wanted to do it sooner but her hair had to grow longer. She does have an awareness of cancer through our family and a family friend who lost her hair after going through breast cancer.”

A Justgiving page for Amelia has already raised £225. It can be found at
