AN ADORABLE 10 year-old wants to make princesses dreams come true for children who have lost their hair because of cancer.

Charlotte Sharp has decided to have her luscious locks cut by 12in and they will be donated to the Little Princess Trust.

The charity donate hair to be made into wigs for children who have lost their own hair because of cancer.

Charlotte, a pupil at Whitehill Community Academy lives on Keighley Road and will get her new look on Friday.

Her hair will be cut from the bottom of her back into a bob.

After talking to parents Paula and Jim, she decided to go online to find out how she could donate her hair.

When she returns to school on Monday she will unveil her new look to her schoolfriends.

Charlotte said: “I’m excited but nervous. My friends are gobsmacked that I’m doing it.”

There are plans for the school to hold a non-uniform day to raise as much money as possible for her brave challenge and teachers have also dug deep to sponsor her.

She has been given £250 from Charity 1st at Elim Church where she goes dancing and the Challengers group have contributed as has her eight year-old brother Cameron.

Mum Paula said: “When people say to her ‘Wow, it’s going to be short’ Charlotte just says ‘my hair will grow back, theirs won’t’.

Charlotte is a keen fund-raiser. As part of her Scout group at St George’s in Lee Mount, she has helped with bag packing at Asda for Breast Cancer charities and Help for Heroes.

“She’s always coming to me with fund-raising ideas,” said Paula.

Each of the wigs need 120g of hair to make a single wig. It can take up to five to ten donations to make a single hairpiece.
