A selfless St Helens schoolgirl paid her first ever visit to a hairdresser so she could donate her hair to a charity which creates wigs for children undergoing chemotherapy.

Eight-year-old Amber Moore was determined to have a whopping 10 inches taken off her locks at Helen’s Hair in Dentons Green in aid of the Little Princess Trust.

The Rivington Primary School pupil’s challenge has also helped to raise more than £400 for the charity.

Her mum, Janette, said: “It was a big thing for Amber to have such a lot of hair cut off. Previously, she had only had an inch trimmed off here and there. She’s never even been to a proper hairdresser before!

“We’re so proud of her for being so brave. It’s an amazing thing for someone so young to want to do. She loves her new haircut too - she looks very grown up.”
