A six-year-old Castle Hill Infants School pupil has donated 7.5inches of her hair to a charity which makes wigs for poorly children.

Emma Watson, from Ipswich, had her hair cut this week, and has already beaten her £30 fundraising target for the cause.

Emma’s mum, Heidi Watson, said: “I am very proud of Emma. She is only six and wanted to donate her hair. She understands about the charity and wants to raise a little bit of money to help.”
