A caring young girl from Kennoway is set to shed her long hair to help children affected by cancer treatment.

Leea Ironside, who celebrates her ninth birthday this Friday, is cutting it off to support the Little Princess Trust which makes real-hair wigs to help children who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment.

Around 10 inches of Leea’s waist-length dark blonde tresses are set to tumble as she aims for her target figure of £350 – the cost of making one single real-hair wig.

Leea, a P4 pupil at Kennoway Primary School, opted to have her hair chopped to shoulder-length, with the cuttings being plaited and sent to the charity.

A date has still to be fixed for the big snip being done free of chargee at The Barbers in Kennoway.
