Izzy, six, inspires with charity chop
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.”
