Zoe Manghan, 16, had her hair cut off to raise money for the Little Princess Trust and Epilepsy Research UK.

Zoe had her long locks cut off by Rhianne Woods at Abi’z Hair and Beauty in Long Sutton and has donated her hair to the Little Princess Trust to be made into real hair wigs for sick children who have lost their own hair.

I have been growing my hair for the past four years and it was always my plan to have it cut a bit shorter afterwards, but a few months ago I thought why not go really short and donate the hair to the Little Princess Trust

Kind-hearted Zoe has also raised more than £630 so far for a charity dear to her heart – Epilepsy Research UK, to help fund their research into this difficult condition.

As Zoe explained: “I have been growing my hair for the past four years so it was long enough to put up for my Prom. It was always my plan to have it cut a bit shorter afterwards, but a few months ago I thought why not go really short and donate the hair to the Little Princess Trust?

“My Mum then suggested trying to raise some sponsorship money too and we decided that Epilepsy Research UK would be the charity to help. I have had epilepsy since I was 11 and it is not well controlled by drugs which makes life very restricting and I think more research is needed.”

Zoe would like to thank everyone who donated their time and money to help her achieve her goal.”
