TEE­GAN Zam­mit is do­nat­ing her long hair to be made into a wig for peo­ple fight­ing can­cer and to raise money for can­cer re­search.

Tee­gan, 10, of He­ber­sham, will have her flow­ing red tresses cut on July 28 at He­ber­sham Pub­lic School.

The hair will then be do­nated to chil­dren’s char­ity Va­ri­ety.

“It’s just been a dream for me,” Tee­gan said of her mo­ti­va­tion to raise money for can­cer re­search.

“I started think­ing about it a cou­ple of years ago.”

Mean­while, Tee­gan’s mother, Amanda Camp­bell, and nine friends have been col­lect­ing do­na­tions for the Can­cer Coun­cil.

Ms Camp­bell has sta­tioned 10 do­na­tion boxes at He­ber­sham Pub­lic, Noumea Pub­lic, Bligh Park and Chi­fley Col­lege – and shop­ping cen­tres around the area.

Do­na­tions can be made on­line by search­ing for Amanda Camp­bell at doit­for­cancer.com.au.
