Kaitlin, a pupil at Elsenham Church of England School, had her hair styled by Amy Dye at Ronnie John’s Hair and Beauty in Sawbridgeworth. The hair was made into a plait so it could be sent off to the charity.

Kaitlin’s mum, Amy said: “When Kaitlin went to school she wanted to have her hair short like some of the other children.

“We thought it was a waste to put eight inches of hair in the bin so we sat her down and asked her if she would like her hair to help someone. She said: ‘If I can make a little girl happy, then I will be happy.’”
