An associate director with Spalding estate agents Morris and Mennie is having her hair cut to make a real difference to the life of a young cancer patient.

Donna Morris (34) will donate seven or eight inches of her locks to the Little Princess Trust, which makes real hair wigs for children with cancer who have lost their own hair due to treatment.

Donna mentioned having a hair cut to a friend who told her about the trust’s work.

“I hadn’t planned to have quite so much cut off but this is for a great cause,” said Donna, who wants to “really make a difference in a child’s life”.

She’s also set up a fundraising page on virginmoneygiving.com and this has so far raised £130 towards her £400 target.

Spalding hairdressers Hedonism are sponsoring and supporting Donna’s fundraising effort and will braid and cut her hair on March 15.

Donna said: “They jumped at the chance. They were over the moon to do it.”

The Little Princess Trust is a charity that provides real hair wigs to children in the UK and Ireland whom have lost their own hair during their cancer treatments, giving the children these wonderful gifts for absolutely free.

The overall cost of a single wig is £350 and Donna wants to blow away that minimum target. You can sponsor Donna by visiting http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/giving/
