Macclesfield Express - - DRUG DEALERS SENTENCED -

A PRI­MARY school pupil has raised £450 by hav­ing her hair cut for a char­ity pro­vid­ing wigs for chil­dren who lose their hair af­ter cancer treat­ment.

Lit­tle Izzy Ni­chol­son, six, who lives on Corn­brook Road, de­cided to sac­ri­fice her long, blonde hair for the Lit­tle Princess Trust af­ter see­ing a video on Face­book of her mum Shona’s friend do­ing the same.

The Ash Grove Academy pupil had her lov­ingly cared for locks chopped off by a hair­dresser in front of the whole school at a spe­cial assem­bly.

She said: “I was re­ally ner­vous but happy af­ter­wards and my hair didn’t get in my eyes any­more.”

Mum Shona, 30, said: “I asked her if she was sure if she wanted to do it and she said yes be­cause she wanted to help the chil­dren with cancer.

“She is such a car­ing lit­tle girl.

“Ev­ery­one was cheer­ing her and now she wants to do it again.

“My­self and her dad, Mark are so proud of her.”

Also cheer­ing Izzy on were her sis­ter Phoebe and brother Kyle.

Shona said: “We’ve put the hair in an en­ve­lope and when we’ve col­lected all the money we’ll send it off. Hope­fully Izzy will have in­spired other kids to do the same.”
