But now, nine-year-old Millie Hannah, of Northrepps, has said goodbye to her long locks, raising more than £1,000 for a children’s charity in the process.

The youngster faced the scissors today (Saturday, January 27) at a table-top sale at Cromer Parish Hall, which was also helping to raise money for the Little Princess Trust. She wanted to raise the money for the charity - and donate her hair so it could be made into wigs for children undergoing cancer treatment - after a school friend lost her battle with the disease.

Dad, Mally Hannah, said the day had been a big success. He said: “We’re doing really well and the raffle has definitely been popular.”

Mum, Krystie Hannah, said: “She’s raised well over £1,000 already and we have more from sponsors to come in. We’re really proud.”

Millie said she was happy after the hair had come off and she had a new hairstyle.
