long hair cut into a bob and now has a big smile on her face, knowing she has made a difference to others. 

She said: "I decided to cut my hair so that children with cancer can have hair like everyone else - but as a wig."

The hair will be given to Little Princess Trust and made into a wig for a child who has hair loss due to cancer. The charity provides this service free of charge to many children and young people thanks to donations like this one. 

She has set up a fundraising page for the charity and has so far raised £370.

Her dad, Sam, who owns several barber shops said: "I am so so proud of Luella. As a barber I know how significant hair is to people and what a difference this will make to a child who can benefit from it."
