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.
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.”
