Dana’s a cut above by giving her hair to children’s charity
A nine year old girl from Great Barton has had her hair cut off to donate to a children’s charity.
Dana Hart had around 10 to 12 inches cut on Tuesday in aid of the Little Princess Trust.
Mother Sophie Hart explained how Dana came up with the idea, she said: “She had talked about having a hair cut for some time, she has such lovely thick hair so we thought if it was going to go then it should be for such a good cause.”
Dana lost her grandmother to cancer four years ago and Ms Hart belives her generosity is what has spurred her on to do this.
She said: “Cancer affects everyone in some way or another, it has affected us and she wanted to do something to help others.”
Before the cut Dana had already raised £490 and Ms Hart couldn’t be happier what her daughter had achieved and grateful that people had supported her fund-raising.
She said: “I am so proud of her, all her family have been so supportive and given so much,
“Her school has even donated and she has been round the playground in the mornings with the other parents and children with her little bucket, I can’t thank everyone enough for being so giving.”
The Little Princess Trust provides specialist real wigs to children who have lost their hair, the charity also gives money for research into the causes of childhood cancers and into minimising the effects of chemotherapy in children.
