Generous Keira Rose from Colyton donates her long hair to children's cancer charity
A nine-year-old girl in Colyton has had 15 inches chopped off her hair, so that it can be made into a wig for a child whose hair has been lost through cancer treatment.
Keira Rose Letten’s selfless gesture also raised £600 for the Little Princess Trust, which provides the real-hair wigs to the youngsters.
Her mother Steph said, “One of her friends in school did it, and she really wanted to do it too. She’s such a lovely caring soul, she’s amazing, she puts everyone else before her.”
Keira Rose’s hair, which Steph said was “nearly down to her bottom”, was cut at the Seaton salon Infamous, who did it free of charge because it was for charity.
The £600 mainly came through family and schoolfriends sponsoring Keira Rose, but she also held a cake fair at her school which raised £120.
And she has no regrets about losing her long tresses: “She loves her new look!” said Steph.
