KINGSWINFORD schoolgirl Millie McCann has proven a cut above at raising cash for charity.

The nine-year-old, who attends Dawley Brook Primary School, had been growing her long brunette locks for the last two years but opted for a short and sweet bob cut so she could donate her envied tresses to help youngsters suffering hair loss as a result of cancer treatment.

Kind-hearted Millie, a pupil in year four, donated nine inches of hair to the Little Princess Trust and raised £360 for the charity in the process after bravely having her hair cut on December 13 at Equi-Lox hair salon in Barnett Lane, Kingswinford.

Proud dad Mick McCann said: "Millie has always been very active in supporting charities, including Macmillan coffee mornings, Race for Life and making aqua beads to sell to raise money for charity.

"People have always commented on how lovely Millie’s hair was, and how brave she was to cut it off.

"Rightly so, she and her family and friends are very proud of her achievements - and she loves her new hairstyle."
