A seven year old girl that had aspirations of being a real life Rapunzel has had her long locks chopped off for charity.

Phoebe-Anne Roberts is donating her blonde hair to the Little Princess Trust, which will be used to make a wig for a poorly youngster.

She is also raising sponsorship for the good cause, which makes real hair wigs for youngsters who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment.

Mum Tracey Woods Roberts said: “From a very young age my daughter had always wanted hair like Rapunzel but during the past couple of months she’s been saying that she would like a bob hairstyle.

“She is a very strong willed little diva who knows what she wants and is very determined, so despite me trying to persuade her to keep it long, ‘no mummy’ is the answer.”

After researching the Little Princess Trust, Phoebe-Anne, who goes to Putnoe Primary School, was even more determined to visit the hairdresser.

So far she has raised £440 through her donation page at https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/feebs.

She had the chop on Good Friday.

Tracey said: “She did so well. She absolutely loves her haircut and it really suits her.”

The deed was done for free by hairdresser Lisa Wheatley and people can donate via Phoebe’s page until May 3.

The end result.
