A kind-hearted five-year-old girl from Sheffield has lopped off her locks for charity.
Aneisha Nadin, who is from Arbourthorne, recently had more than eight inches of hair cut off so it can be donated to the Little Princess Trust, a charity that provides wigs to children who have lost their hair through cancer treatment.
Her proud mum Jenny Senior has also set up a JustGiving page for the good cause, with more than £265 raised so far.
Jenny said the pair hope to raise £350, which is the cost of making a wig.
She said Aneisha had wanted to donate her hair after seeing a television programme about children with cancer.
Jenny said: “She saw a hospital programme on TV and asked ‘Why has that little girl got no hair?’ I explained she was poorly and the treatment is better than having no treatment.
“She said ‘I could share my hair with that little girl’.”
Jenny said she was proud of her daughter’s thoughtful actions.
Aneisha was given the hair cut by staff at Mirror Talk hairdressers on The Moor, who donated their normal charge to the charity.
Aneisha said: “I saw some little girls who had no hair and my Mummy told me they were poorly, I have been deciding if I should cut my hair for a long time but I really liked my long hair. I have had it cut off and I am sending it to the Little Princess Trust so a poorly girl can have new hair.”
The charity works to provide real-hair wigs free of charge to boys and girls in the UK and Ireland that have lost their hair through cancer treatment. A spokesman said many ill children find hair loss ‘very upsetting’.
