A sponsored haircut to raise money for charity and to help children who lost their hair through cancer has raised more than £2,000.

Deanne Mann’s three daughters, twins Paige and Abbie, aged 11, and six-year-old Amber had their hair cut off for the Little Princesses’ Trust charity and lots of other people joined in the Brave the Shave and Chop the Crop event with them in Norwich.

“We raised £2,311,” said Deanne. “ We split that between Little Princesses’ Trust and Beads of Courage. In total, I sent off 24 different people’s hair and people were all putting something into the bucket.”

The event was held in the Castle Mall and the girls’ hair was cut by Deanne, and then styled by hairdressers, attracting lots of attention.

The Little Princesses’ Trust makes wigs for children who have lost their hair through illness and Beads of Courage awards beads as milestones as patients go through their treatment.
