Kind Pershore girl gets locks chopped for charity

A KIND-hearted Pershore girl had locks of her hair cut off so it can be used to make wigs out of for children suffering from cancer.

Nine-year-old Emily Hawker faced the chop on Monday at Sweeney Todd Hair Salon in Pershore and will now donate her hair to the Little Princess Trust.

It will then be used by the charity to create a wig which will be given to a youngster who has suffered from hair loss as a result of cancer treatment.

Emily’s mum, Debbie Roberts, explained why her daughter was inspired to face the chop for a good cause.

“She just asked for a haircut and said that she could donate it as she had seen girls do it online,” Debbie said.

“It was as simple as that. She wanted to help children who were having treatment which made them lose their hair.

“I think Emily is very braVe and it’s such a kind gesture.

“I am so proud of Emily and extremely delighted that I have a daughter that wanted to do such a wonderful thing for others.”
