A Barnoldswick girl has decided to have her brunette locks chopped and donate a bob to charity.

Seven-year-old Evie Holt, of Park Road, had her ponytail cut and has donated it to the Little Princess Trust.

The Trust provides real-hair wigs to boys and girls across the UK and Ireland that have lost their own hair through cancer treatment.

The St Joseph’s RC Primary School pupil had the hair cut free courtesy of the Halo Hair and Beauty in Church Street.

Evie’s mum Lisa Holt said: “I’m really proud of her. One little girl has got her a present and I think the school have presented her with a certificate. The charity will also send a certificate out I believe.

“I put it on Facebook and so many people have been coming up to us and asking about it. She’s become a bit of a Barnoldswick diva now.

“Everybody has been amazed by it. It’s such an easy and worthwhile thing to do. I think if more people knew about it, they would do it no problem.

“I don’t think people realise they are crying out for these wigs for both boys and girls.”
