A GROUP of brave children have donated their hair to help make wigs for children battling cancer and raise vital funds for charity.

The campaign, Kids Helping Kids, has been set up by Matt’s Mission charity to inspire children to support children living cancer.

So far, more than 150 children have given up their luscious locks and donated over 2000 inches of hair to the Little Princess Trust – a figure which is set to grow.

The children dressed up as their favourite Disney princess and arrived in style in a pink limo before taking the chop.

Matt’s Mission, Matt Denning said: “It was a magical day.

“It was wonderful to see the smiles on the children’s faces and it was great to see the children living with cancer helping out with the hair cuts.

“Each child received a certificate, trophy and sash to recognise their great work.

“We hope we can inspired more children to give up their hair to help others.”
