A local teenager has chopped off seven inches of her hair to donate to children with cancer.
Amelie Hayes’ dramatic new April look raised £750 for the Little Princess Trust - a charity which makes free real-hair wigs for young people undergoing chemotherapy.
Sabrina and Co in Harpenden cut and styled her hair for free, which Amelie had spent a year growing.
Amelie’s mum Claire Hayes said she was proud: “I think she was a bit shocked first of all but she’s pleased she did it.
“She loved her hair and didn’t want to cut it off but she wanted to do it for charity.”

The 15-year-old from Wheathampstead said her motivation is to support the less fortunate.
Last year she raised another £750 for Macmillan Cancer Support at a cake sale.
