A six-year-old from Weston raised more than £500 for a children’s hospice by having her long locks cut off.
Romani Holland, who attends Haywood Village Academy, said she was inspired to raise the money ‘because I don’t like that the children are poorly, and I want to help them feel better’.
Her hair was also donated to the Little Princess Trust, so two charities benefited from her kind gesture.
Romani and her mum were given a tour of Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) when they handed over the cheque for £533.
CHSW community fundraiser, Kylie Gallagher, said: “They were able to see for themselves all the wonderful facilities we have here, including a spa pool, soft play, art room and sensory room.
“As well as sampling the delicious cakes, Romani particularly enjoyed delving into the dressing up box where she selected a pretty bridesmaid dress to wear for the rest of the tour.”
