A Fraserburgh school girl has donated her hair to a children’s cancer charity while raising £500 for them in the process.

Jennifer Davidson, 14, chopped off nearly 10 inches of her long brown hair and donated it to The Little Princess Trust.

Jennifer said: “I picked that charity because i like helping people and i wanted to give my hair to young people who had lost their hair through cancer.”

The third year pupil at Fraserburgh Academy went for the big chop the day before her fourteenth birthday.

She said: “I just thought it would be a good time to do it.”

The Little Princess Trust are a charity organisation who provide real hair wigs free of charge for boys and girls across the UK and Ireland who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment.

Jennifer also managed to raise £500 for the charity as well as donating her hair.

With the help of her parents the teenager used social media to fundraise for the trust and set up a JustGiving page.

Jennifer said: “I would like to say thank you to everyone who generously donated towards this charity.

“We couldn’t have done it without you.”

The Little Princess Trust is currently running a campaign called #HairToSpare Vs #NoHairToSpare to help raise awareness about their charity and to inspire others to do what Jennifer has done.

Pop singer Jessie J donated her hair to The Little Princess Trust after she famously had her head shaved live on TV for that year’s Comic Relief.
