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.
