A seven year old has raised more than £1,200 for charity after having her hair cut off.
Chloe Godden, a pupil at Skyswood primary, had her hair cut off last Wednesday (10) to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis care at Frimley Park, where her father receives treatment every six months for the condition.
She also donated her hair to the ‘Little Princess Trust’ after wanting to help people suffering with Cancer.
Chloe started out with a fundraising target of £50 but the total has since topped £1,200.
Her mother Clare Godden, 36, of Harefield Place, St Albans, said: “My dad had cancer a few years ago and she said she wanted to so something for him. She wanted to have her hair cut and she asked if she could donate it for grandpa.

“Because my husband has cystic fibrosis she wanted to do something for him too.”
The family donated the hair to the Little Princess Trust, which provides real hair wigs for children suffering with hair loss, and the money raised for Frimley Park could fund a new piece of equipment.
