A selfless five-year-old from Nailsea has had seven inches of her hair cut off to help children undergoing cancer treatment.

Emma Bazzard, who attends The Downs School in Wraxall, had her long locks chopped off for the Little Princess Trust, which makes real-hair wigs for children who have lost their hair through cancer treatment.

She has also raised more than £500 for the cause.

Emma received a bravery award from South Western Ambulance Service last year after she dialled 999 when her heavily pregant mum fell down the stairs and was knocked unconscious.

Her mum, Catherine Bazzard said: “When I was in hospital she met a few children who were ill and she decided she wanted to cut her hair off to make a wig.

“I’m incredibly proud of her. She’s amazing, she’s always thinking of others.”
