El­lie, eight, chops locks for char­ity


AN eight-year-old girl has had a dra­matic makeover for char­ity.

El­lie Jae Boul­ton, of As­cot Close, Tyther­ing­ton, has chopped off her long locks for the Lit­tle Princess Trust char­ity which makes and pro­vides real hair wigs for chil­dren who have lost their hair due to can­cer.

El­lie, who


to Chetham’s School of Mu­sic, said: “I wanted to cut my hair for char­ity be­cause I thought it would be a good cause for chil­dren that have had can­cer.

“I am also try­ing to raise money to ac­tu­ally make the wigs, as just one wig costs £360.”

El­lie says she loves her new look.

She added: “My hair is now a bit shorter than my fam­ily had wanted it but I am very happy with it.

“Thanks to Harry at Toni and Guy in Mac­cles- field who was so kind to do it for free.”

Mum Heather Boul­ton, 40, a bal­let teacher, spoke of her de­light at her daugh­ter’s ef­forts.

She said: “As El­lie’s par­ents we were very proud of her for hav­ing the de­sire to want to help oth­ers.

“Hav­ing seen a friend of ours lose all of her hair af­ter re­ceiv­ing chemo­ther­apy, it be­came clear to El­lie how im­por­tant it is to many peo­ple that they re­ceive wigs that look and feel re­al­is­tic.”
