Story inspires Kezia to measure up for the chop

A KIND-HEARTED student from Feckenham First School has faced the chop for charity after having 10 inches of her hair lopped off in aid of the Little Princess Trust.

Eight-year-old Kezia Bull has spent more than half her life growing her strawberry-blonde hair but after reading in the Standard about fellow Redditch youngster, Ashleigh Coffin, she made the brave decision to donate her own locks.

Mum Fiona said Kezia had originally heard about the Little Princess Trust after pop sensation Jessie J shaved her head for Comic Relief two years ago and donated her famous tresses to the charity but Ashleigh’s story was a reminder.

“She found the website herself and dug out the tape measure to check her hair was long enough to make the minimum donation of seven inches,” Fiona added.

“I am really proud of her although I think I’ll be lost in September when I don’t have to plait her hair for school anymore.”

Little Princess Trust which provides real hair wigs, free of charge, to children across the UK and Ireland who have lost their own hair due to lifesaving treatment.

The Southcrest youngster faced the scissors at Hacienda Hair Salon, in Headless Cross.

“My hair was the longest it had ever been,” said Kezia. “It was due for a trim but I decided I wanted much more than just a few inches cut off.”

The inspirational little girl has now raised £365, smashing her target of £350 which is the amount the charity has to purchase wigs at.
