The Forever Friends Appeal is raising £4.5 million for a new neo-natal ward to help care for the 500 babies born prematurely or seriously ill every year. For details visit or TWO sisters in Corsham have shown their support for the Bath Royal United Hospital's space to grow' campaign by cutting off their hair to raise money.

Kisha and Shanine Cox lost nearly 20 inches of hair between them and sold it to raise money for the Forever Friends Appeal .

The girls, from Arnolds Mead, Corsham, sent their bundles of hair off to the Locks of Love charity which uses the hair to provide wigs for children suffering from hair loss.

The money will be sent back in the next two weeks and will then be hand delivered to the Royal United Hospital in Bath by the girls and their mother Sarah Cox.

Kisha, 12, who goes to Corsham Comprehensive School said: "I preferred it long because I can't play with it or plait it but it will grow.

"My mum said when it grows back we can do it again, it gives me a happy feeling."

The girls had their hair chopped off after growing it for over three years. Kisha said: "They put it in two pony tails and just cut them off then they styled it."

Shanine, ten, who goes to Corsham Regis School, said she would do it all again.

"My friends think it is a bit weird but they have got used to it now. It was my mum's idea but I was a bit scared," she said.

The sisters are not yet sure how much their sacrifice will have raised.
