Woodford Green mother and daughter cut off 16 inches of hair for charity

A mother and daughter had 16 inches of their hair cut off to donate to a charity which makes wigs for children undergoing cancer treatment.

Laura Goodman, 29, and Claire Perry, 57, have raised more than �1,800 which is enough to buy six wigs.

Mrs Goodman, of Hale End Road, Woodford Green, said: “My mum grew her hair specifically to donate which took about four-and-a-half years, but I’ve never had my hair this short before.

“I was quite scared to have it done but I don’t regret it at all.”

The hair will be given to the Little Princess Trust.
