Girls in Huddersfield have been making the big chop for charity.

Charly Matthews and Ellie Jones both cut off their lovely locks to donate to children who have lost their own from cancer treatment.

Despite being aged only 13 and nine respectively, Charly and Ellie each managed to raise hundreds of pounds for their chosen charities.

Charly, a pupil at Almondbury Community School, said she wanted to donate her glossy brown locks to the Little Princess Trust “because their hair might not grow back.”

Charly also managed to raise more than £200 for the cause after hearing wigs for patients can cost up to £350.

Proud mum Michelle, 40, said: “She has always been more mature for her age.”

Charly had her hair cut at the Heirloom salon in Almondbury, while the cost of the cut was donated to Little Princess.

Michelle added: “We are so proud of her.

“There’s not many 13-year-olds you see making such a bold move for charity. It has restored my faith in humans.”

Nine-year-old Ellie Jones from Slaithwaite also made the cut for the Little Princess Trust.

Mum Paula said Ellie wanted to give something to other children less fortunate as she also raised £280 for the Starlight Children’s Foundation after it granted wishes to one of her friends.

She said: “Ellie’s friend had been poorly and had umpteen operations. She found out about the Foundation from her.

“She has had a good eight inches taken off and has just a bob now, but she hasn’t regretted it.”

Big brother Benji, 11, came and supported Ellie whilst having her plait cut at The Salon in Slaithwaite.

Monica Glass, charity manager at Little Princess, said: “What great girls! How wonderful to donate their hair to children suffering with cancer.

“Both girls’ hair will be blended with other donations and made into a real hair wig for either a boy or a girl in the UK or Ireland.

“The charity knows that receiving a wig at such a difficult time really lifts the child’s spirits and those of the family around them, too.”
