When North Walsham sisters Amelia and Pollyanna Williams heard about a charity making wigs for children who have lost their hair, they decided they wanted to help.

And now, two years later, Amelia, 8, and Pollyanna, 6, have not only sent off more than two feet of their own hair to the Little Princess Trust, they have also raised more than £1,600.

The cash will pay for almost five wigs to be made by the charity, which helps children being treated for cancer and other illnesses leading to hair loss.

Amelia and Pollyanna's parents Matthew and Amanda, who run a digger hire company, thanked all those who supported the girls, both of whom are pupils at Worstead Primary School.

"We are incredibly proud of Amelia and Pollyanna," Mrs Williams said. "Your hair is a big part of who you are and it felt very emotional when they had it cut off, but knowing there are possibly five children who are going to benefit, it's just an amazing thing for them to do."
