Lilia Roe wanted to get her long hair cut – and her mum Kelly didn't want it to go to waste.

That's why the seven-year-old is donating her trimmed tresses to the Little Princess Trust.

Added to that, Lilia is handing over £370 in sponsorship money to the charity which supplies wigs for children who have lost their hair due to alopecia or cancer treatment.

Mum Kelly said: "It seemed a great shame for Lilia's hair to be just thrown in the bin.

"So when she decided she definitely wanted it cut I suggested we donate it to the Little Princess Trust.

"I explained how the charity helped other children – and Lilia agreed instantly."

The Hythehill pupil had her long locks cut earlier this week at the Angry Barber on Elgin's North Street.

The stylist was Donna Alexander who, when Lilia was much younger, had been the very first person to ever cut her hair.

Kelly added: "Lilia has only ever have had it trimmed before, so having so much off was quite a big step.

"She was originally going to have it shoulder-length, but decided instead to have it chin level.

"I was a little bit worried at first about how short it was going to be, but I really like it.

"And the main thing is that Lilia really likes it as well."
