A schoolgirl will have her long locks cut short to support a charity which provides real hair wigs for children who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment.

Sienna Poynton, of Blacon, was inspired to do something to help those less fortunate than herself after a discussion about bullying at school.

After speaking to her mum, the 10-year-old, who attends Chester Blue Coat Primary School, decided she would combine her 11th birthday with having her flowing hair cut to be donated to the Little Princess Trust.

Jane Matthews from Hair Parade in Blacon will be cutting up to 10 inches off Sienna's hair at a fundraising evening and birthday celebration at the St Theresa's Parish Centre on Friday, March 4.


Kind-hearted Sienna has invited her friends from school and asked them to make donations to Little Princess Trust rather than buying presents.

Sienna's mum, Tara Lampard, explains: "She came home from school one evening and was upset and said that they were taking about reasons that people would be bullied in school and one was because some people have no hair due to one reason or another so she asked if she could have her hair cut to give it to someone that needed it.

"We will be holding a raffle to raise money for the charity on the night and we're also thinking of doing a supermarket bag pack after the event to raise more money.

"Sienna has invited her whole class to the event and has asked for donations for the charity rather than birthday presents."

Anyone wanting to make donations can do so online via a JustGiving page.
