A teenager from Walpole St Peter has donated her hair to The Little Princess Trust charity.
Lauren Flowers, 18, who is a hairdressing student at the College of West Anglia, had her locks cut in order to give a child suffering from hair loss a real hair wig.
She said: “I decided to have my long hair cut off for the Little Princess Trust because I wanted to donate my hair to a princess.
“My new hairstyle does feel odd and will take some getting used to, but I like it.
“I want to say thank you to everyone who has supported me with donations; I’ve already had over £250 in sponsorship money.”

“I am training to become a hairdresser, and would love to raise as much money as I can for the charity.”
