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

Phoebe-Anne Roberts will be 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 more than £250 through her donation page at
She will be facing the chop today (Good Friday) but people will be able to donate to her page until May 3.

Tracey, of Putnoe, said: “Phoebe-Anne had a godmother, a dear friend of mine, who we lost three years ago. She lost all if her hair through cancer as a child and Phoebe-Anne calls her ‘Danni in the sky’. She would be so proud of her for helping others.”

Hairdresser Lisa Wheatley is doing the haircut for free.
