Freya and Katy say goodbye to their long locks in a bid to help children with cancer

An aspiring Rapunzel and her red-haired pal had a sponsored hair cut and raised more than £1,400 for a children’s cancer wig charity.

Freya Gregory, six, and seven-year-old friend Katy Brown donated their tresses to the Little Princes Trust, which provides free wigs to children who are suffering from cancer and have lost their hair through treatment.

The St Andrews Primary School pupils came home one day saying they wanted to help other children who didn’t have long hair like them.

Freya, of Elm Drive, Chinnor, had the big chop in front of crowds at an organised event at The Wheatsheaf in Oakley Road, Chinnor, on Saturday and was seen grinning as the hairdresser held up her ponytail.

Freya’s mum Lee-Ann, 31, said: “I’m so proud of her because she’s always been really precious about her hair. She wanted to be like Rapunzel!

“The day went really well and the total the girls have raised so far is £1412.69. We are completely blown away by this amount as we were originally aiming for £400.”

Katy wasn’t able to attend on the day, but had her hair cut at a later date.
