It was a case of hair today, gone tomorrow for little Niamh Everett, who wanted to help another little girl live a happy life.
The six-year-old Year 1 pupil at St Michael's CE primary School in Aylsham had her long locks chopped off to donate to the Little Princess Trust, which makes wigs for children who have lost their hair through chemotherapy treatment for cancer.
Mum, Elly Everett, who lives in Aylsham, said: "Niamh saw some girls on a YouTube video who had their hair cut and donated it and she wanted to do the same. She's been wanting to do this for six months.
"She said that she wanted to donate her hair so a little girl wouldn't feel different from her friends or left out."
Niamh said afterwards she was "really excited" to have had her hair cut.
Her mum said: "I'm very proud of my amazing little girl."
