Ellie Clark had her hair cut off to help children with cancer.

Ellie’s mother Lauren said her daughter saw a story on a social media platform that inspired her to get her hair cut for the Trust.

She said: “She wanted to help children with cancer because there was a story on Tik Tok about a little baby who lost her life to cancer and she was about the same age as Ellie’s brother Lucas so she wants to do something to help children who go through the terrible disease to make life a little better for them.

“She had to make sure her hair wasn’t dyed and in good condition. She’s been growing hair all her life and always had the ends trimmed to keep it nice and long.

“She had cut 12 inches (30 cm) of hair. She was supposed to grow 27 cm, but she decided to have shorter hair so she could donate more to the Trust.”

Ellie got her hair cut on August 6.

Ellie said: “She loves her shorter hair and it makes her so grown up.

“She would grow her hair back to get this done again for the Trust.”

Ellie has raised an incredible £816 for the Little Princess Trust and the fundraising will go towards making the wigs.

Lauren added: “I’m so proud of her.

“Ellie is such a caring, thoughtful girl and would do anything to help anyone. I am so proud to be her mother and have a special daughter like her. I hope it puts a smile on another little one’s face can do magic.”
