First-timer Raiya Robertson and her best friend Ruby-Leigh Whittle, both aged eight, will lose 10 inches of their hair for The Little Princess Trust.

The youngsters are also raising £200 for the charity which provides free wigs to young people who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment or other conditions.

Their mothers, Jade Rollings and Katie Whittle say they are so proud of their daughters.

Raiya's mother, Jade, said: "They're both so excited to do this and they keep asking how much they've raised for the charity.

"They've told their teachers about it and even asked them to donate."

Katie added: "They won't be having their hair cut until the end of the summer holidays, so we hope they can smash their target."
