A desire to help poorly children has inspired one seven-year-old girl to grow her hair extra-long before having it cut off for charity.
Bradi-Mai Adams, of Harewood Terrace in Haverhill, came up with the idea out of the blue some months ago to keep growing her hair before then cutting it off and donating to a charity.
The Clements Primary School pupil will have her long locks lopped off on May 10 at Creation Hair Studio in Gloucester Road and donate it to the Little Princess Trust, a charity that makes wigs for girls who have lost their hair due to treatment for cancer.
Here mum, Kayleigh Mahoney, said: “She has been growing her hair for ages and just came up with the idea of donating it to little girls who don’t have any hair.
“She came up with the idea all by herself.”
Bradi-Mai told her mum six months ago she wanted to grow her hair down to her bum, which she has now duly done.
Kayleigh added: “She hates having her hair done and perhaps has been growing it just to go through the torture of having her hair brushed, just so she can have it all cut off.
“She wanted to let it grow so it was long enough.
“When she said she would be doing this I was very proud.
“You can help me raise money for this great cause by donating directly to our fund raising page at www.justgiving.com/Kayleigh-Mahoney.”
Bradi-Mai has given out some sponsor forms and already collected her first £20 online.
She hopes to raise £300 through her charitable hair cut.
