A MUM and daughter are having their long hair cut to help children with cancer.

Eight-year-old Charla Banks decided to help the charity the Little Princess Trust after her grandfather became unwell with cancer.

The Poppleton Road Primary School pupil was shocked to learn that children can have cancer and she and mum Tammy decided they would try and help by having their very long hair cut off to make two wigs for children undergoing treatment.

Tammy said: "Charla started asking questions of whether children could get cancer and was quite upset when she learned they could. We decided to make it into a positive to see what we could do to help."

They also hope to raise £700 to fund two further wigs to be made by the charity.

They will have their hair cut at Vida Hairadressing in Boroughbridge Road on August 28.
