Laura's locks raise nearly £700 for the Little Princess Trust

First published in

AN Eastburn girl has raised almost £700 for charity by having her hair cut.

Laura Cook’s hair will be used to create a wig for a child fighting cancer.

And sponsorship, which has already passed the £680 mark, will pay for wigs to be made.

Laura, 12, who attends Skipton Girls’ High School, wanted to support the work of the Little Princess Trust.

Laura’s mother, Helen, said her daughter was really calm when her hair was cut off at the Beau salon in Steeton.

She said: “I think Kelly, the hairdresser, and myself were more nervous than she was. She’s really pleased with the final cut and with how much she has raised.”

Laura, who has had long hair all her life, initially wanted to raise the £350 cost of creating one real-hair wig.

Helen said Laura wanted to thank everyone who donated to the Little Princess Trust in support of her hair cut.
