A Limavady teenager has bravely chopped off 10 inches of her hair to raise funds for charity.

Fourteen-years-old Limavady High School student Sarah Morrison bravely donated her waist-long blonde hair to the Little Princess Trust foundation on Friday June 19.

In memory of her great aunt Eva Elliott who passed away due to cancer 15 months ago, Sarah decided she wanted to do something to help those suffering with the disease.

Sarah saw 10 inches of her hair fall from her head, but the dramatic change was met with pride.  

Grinning from ear to ear Sarah said: “I’m so happy I’ve done it now. Auntie Eva would be so proud of me. At least some other child will now have hair.”

The Little Princess Trust, created in 2006, is a UK-based charity that donates wigs made from real hair to children who have lost their hair to cancer.

Through generous donations like Sarah’s, the charity is able to restore some confidence and normalcy to the child’s life.

On top of hair donations each wig costs £350 to make.

Sarah hopes to continue her charity in raising both awareness and money for the cause.

Through generous donations from family, friends and kind strangers Sarah has passed her initial target of £200, but wants to continue and see as many sick children granted a wig as possible.
