A BIG-hearted girl who has already raised hundreds of pounds to combat leukaemia has had her hair chopped in aid of the Little Princess Trust.
Nine-year-old Mia Gregg hit the headlines back in 2016 when, with her little sister Mollie May, they turned their Redditch home into an art gallery by hanging their own paintings and inviting people to buy them to help leukaemia charities.
This time, proud dad Spencer was stunned when Mia, after reading of a little girl who had lost her hair due to cancer treatment, announced she wanted to help the Little Princess Trust, which provides real hair wigs for children.
“She has always had long hair and has never had more than a tiny bit cut off in the past,” said Spencer.
“She’s also very determined and we asked her several times if she was sure she wanted to go through with having her hair cut and she was insistent that it be done.”
The family went to Benjamin Ryan Hair of Edmund Street in Birmingham where hairdresser Ben Matthews cut her hair for free.
“Mia was very nervous but Ben made her feel at ease and was able to cut 11 inches of her hair and still give her a fantastic new style,” said Spencer.
As well as donating her hair Mia, has so far raised nearly £1,000 from her Just Giving page and approximately £200 in direct sponsorship.

The money will go straight to Little Princess Trust and automatically reclaims Gift Aid for UK taxpayers.
