A nine-year-old girl has donated her hair to the Little Princess Trust to support her friend who suffered from cancer.

Freya Gill, from Nailsea, had never had her hair cut before, but was inspired to brave the scissors to support the charity after her friend James Burrows was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma at the age of 16.

James, who grew up in Nailsea and lives in Long Ashton, is now 19 and is currently raising money for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

He is a hot air balloon pilot and this year had a balloon made for the charity, which was unveiled at the Bristol Interational Balloon 

James’ mum Debbie accompanied Freya to the salon to have her hair cut. Her long locks will now be used to make real hair wigs for children who have lost their hair through cancer treatment.
