A St Albans personal trainer has donated her hair to be made into a wig for a child with cancer.
After becoming a mum, Denise Austin, 36, decided to donate her long locks to The Little Princess Trust which provides free wigs to children and young people who have lost their hair through cancer treatment or other conditions.
Denise, who lives in Hemel Hempstead and works at Nuffield Health and Wellbeing Centre in St Albans, said: "When you're a parent, these organisations really make you want to help other children.
"Once the day came to have it cut, not only was I was excited to have a new, short style but also proud do something to help a child or young adult.
"I really want people to be aware of this organisation as it is so worthwhile. Having shorter hair has also made my life lots easier!"
