A Rockbeare youngster is having her long locks cut off and turned into a wig to help other children fighting cancer.
Millie Horn, who lives in Lowbrook, will undergo the chop at Envious Hair Salon in Feniton on Friday (August 10).
The brave nine-year-old decided she wanted to undergo the cut to help the Little Princess Trust, a charity which provides real hair wigs free of charge to children and young people who have lost their own hair due to cancer.
Millie’s mum, Kimberly, said: “We are extremely proud of Millie.
“All of her life, Millie’s hair has been bottom-length.
