A nine-year-old school girl from Bewbush has raised £1,170 for The Little Princess Trust by cutting 13 inches of hair and donating it to help create wigs for children in need.

Evie Winkworth wanted to raise funds to help pay for the creation of two wigs, which cost The Little Princess Trust £550 to create each one. These wigs are donated free of charge to their recipients.

On Tuesday, June 7, Evie braved the ‘BIG CHOP’ and donated 13 inches of her own hair after three years of growth.

Evie’s father Michael Winkworth, said: “Evie has told us many times that she wants to make others smile. I think you will agree that this amazing act of kindness, from one so young, is going to make someone smile again.

There is still time to donate and you can do so through Evie’s GoFundMe page:
