YOUNG Chloe Begg might not get the part of Rapunzel at the panto this year but at least her lovely long locks are going to a worthy cause – and raised over £600 for charity too.

The big-hearted girl from Wick donated 17 inches of her hair to the Little Princess Trust – a charity which gives real-hair wigs to children who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment or other illnesses.

Eleven-year-old Chloe, who had her hair cut at local salon Curl up and Dye, said she felt "very privileged" that she could make a difference to a child who has gone through cancer treatments or other illnesses resulting in hair loss.

"I have been overwhelmed with the support given to me by my family, friends and teachers in together raising £647 along with my hair donation," added Chloe, a primary seven pupil at Newton Park Primary School.

"I would like to thank everyone who was part of my charity event. I feel very proud that together we could help make a small difference in someone’s life and hope that more people will donate their hair to help children feel special again."
