Two schoolgirls have had their hair cut to raise money for three charities.

Jade Hudson, 13, and seven-year-old Abbie-Jane Whiles, each decided to have around 12 inches of their hair cut off with Jade, of Coffee Hall, supporting Cancer Research.

Abbie-Jane, of Bletchley, decided to raise funds for The Little Princess Trust and Harry’s Rainbow appeal.

Jade’s mum, Vicky Mayberry, said: “She was really brave and towards the end she was quite happy to take control. She started thinking about it when her Nan was diagnosed with cancer but I thought she was a bit young.

“We supported her and I said ‘as long as you know it will take time to grow back’.”

Abbie-Jane’s mum, Sian, said: “The event went really well and I am so incredibly proud of her. She thought of the idea when she was five and I thought she’d forget about it but she was in the same class as Harry Mold and has always wanted to support the Little Princess Trust.

“We would like to thank Changes Hair Studio and Lana May Photography for their support as well as friends and family. Without that she couldn’t have done it.”
