Little Emily Ryan will be making a visit with a difference to the hairdresser next month. When she cuts her long hair for her 11th birthday, she will be donating it to the Little Princess Trust, which helps provide wigs for sick children who lose their hair following cancer treatment or various conditions such as alopecia.

Emily, who goes to Southfield Primary School, decided to try to help the Little Princess Trust when her mother Leanne told her about the work they do to help children.

Says Emily; "I have been growing my hair for many years and decided I wanted to cut it short. When I asked my mum about doing this she suggested donating my hair to the Little Princess Trust who make wigs for little girls with cancer who have lost their hair due to medicine. I thought this was a better idea to help these girls than to just throw my hair in the bin."

So far she has raised £280 and hopes to reach £1,000. The Trust has helped provide wigs for over 1,000 boys and girls.

Hairdresser David who owns Livias hair salon just off the Chiswick High Road is going to cut Emily's hair. He said he was happy to be involved in such a fantastic cause and is asking his clients to sponsor Emily. The hair cut will take place on March 1st, the day Emily turns eleven.
