A DROITWICH girl with 25-inch long hair will take the ‘very brave’ step when she gets two thirds of it chopped in aid of charity, writes Eve Watson.
Lillie Quoroll will have 16 inches cut off at an Ombersley hairdressers on Wednesday, August 28.
The 11-year-old came up with the idea after her grandmother turned 70 and as a birthday request, asked all family members to raise funds towards cancer charities instead of receiving gifts.
Lillie has chosen the Little Princess Trust, which makes wigs for children who have lost their hair through treatments for cancer and other illnesses, and her mum Joanne has helped set up an online fund-raising page.
Joanne said: “I’m super proud of her, and it’s for such lovely reasons she’s chosen to do this – it’s very brave of her.
“When she first suggested it I said ‘are you sure?’.
“She said to me ‘it’s only hair’ and she wanted to give it to people who had lost theirs.”
Their GoFundMe page has already reached £85 of the £100 target and they are hoping Standard readers will help reach the designated total.
