A NINE-year-OLD girl wanted to donate to a charity which makes wigs for children who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment.

Mazie Taylor, a pupil at Ysgol Croes Atti in Flint, wanted to cut her hair and donate it to the Little Princess Trust after hearing about the organisation from her friends at school.

The charity provides free real hair wigs to children across the UK and Ireland who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment or to those who suffer with alopecia.

Mazie also wanted to raise money for the charity as well as donating her hair.

So far she and her mother Roxanne have collected about £325 for the cause.

Mrs Taylor, 28, said: “She just came home from school one day and told me she really wanted to get her hair cut for the [Little] Princess Trust.

“She absolutely loves her new hair cut now and I’m so proud of her.

“We’re hoping to send off everything to the charity by the end of this week.”

The mother and daughter duo organised an event at the Welsh Harp in Flint for people to come along and watch the nine-year-old have her hair cut – which was 20 inches long – into a bob while enjoying a charitable party.

Friend of the family Shelley O’Brien, a trainee at Deeside College, was at the event to cut Mazie’s hair.

Mrs Taylor added: “It went great.

“Mazie was happy because she wanted all her family and friends to be there and her family friend [Shelley] to cut her hair.”
