A six-year-old is to brave the clippers in a sponsored head shave in aid of homeless and vulnerable people living in Sheffield.

Ava Hatt, of Swallownest, Rotherham, will not only be raising money for the city centre Cathedral Archer Project, but will also be donating her long, blonde locks to the Little Princess Trust.

The Swallownest Primary School pupil decided to raise money for a good cause after watching a TV programme with her mum, Lucy Moffatt.

Ava said: “I watched something about charities with my mum about a year ago and have been pestering her ever since to let me shave my hair to raise money for charity.

“I am shaving my hair to raise money for the Cathedral Archer Project, because I want to help people that do not have a warm home.”

Ava hopes to raise £500 for the charity, based at Sheffield Cathedral, which helps turn around the lives of homeless people in Sheffield.

She will have her hair shaved at the Volt Salon, on East Parade, in the city centre on Saturday, March 28.

Her shorn locks will then be donated to the Little Princess Trust, a charity set up to provide real hair wigs for children who are suffering hair loss.
