GENEROUS Devizes youngster Hannah Osgood has sacrificed her long blonde locks for charity to help other children.

The caring pupil of Bishops Cannings Primary School had 12 inches chopped off by Marianna Vartuca at Blush Beauty Studio in Pewsey on Saturday after being inspired by the Little Princess Trust.

The locks the 10-year-old got cut off are now in the post heading towards the charity which makes wigs for girls and boys who have lost their hair through cancer treatment and other illnesses.

Her proud mum Charlie, 39, of Forty Acres Road, Devizes, who is also mum to Christopher and JJ, said: “She got 12 inches cut off because she heard about children having cancer and losing their hair and she wanted to help them.

“I am so proud of her it is lovely and quite overwhelming. She was as cool as a cucumber when she was getting it cut, she was not scared and kept chatting.

“She is over the moon and people have been saying how amazing she is.”

Hannah has also smashed her target of raising £100 for the charity and has raised £420. Donations can still be made at:

She said: “I love my hair and have thought how would I feel if I lost mine? I know I would be heartbroken, so if I can help another child that has lost theirs then that would be great and also mine will grow back, theirs might not.”
