AN EIGHT-year-old inspired by a video on YouTube had her long locks cut off for charity.

Frankie May Williams, a pupil at Ysgol Bryn Collen in Llangollen, came across a video about a little girl who had cancer and was going to lose her hair.

It struck a chord with Frankie and she decided to start growing her hair to donate.

Frankie say goodbye to her long locks

The youngster has raised about £380 and is donating to The little Princess Trust, which provide real hair wigs to children and young people with hair loss.

Rhian Davies, who has partner Jamie Williams, said: "Frankie loves her new look and she wanted her hair even shorter but I think that was because it would mean she didn’t have to brush it.

"Frankie is donating to The little Princess Trust.

Kind hearted Frankie grew her hair so she could donate it

"We set up a JustGiving page in Frankie's name which we shared on Facebook. It raised £185 and Frankie had cash donations from her friends, family and school teachers of £195.

"We raised a total of £380 all together. This in itself is enough money to supply a wig for a child that needs it."

Frankie, who lives in Llangollen, has a younger brother called Jack, aged four.

Frankie's godmother Jessica Richards carried out the hair cut.

Rhian added: "She is such a caring thoughtful young lady."

Denise Williams, Frankie's grandmother, said: "Frankie is a very kind and loveable granddaughter we are very proud of her."
