AN eight-year-old girl has raised more than double her target after cutting her hair for charity.

Millie French, of Eaden Crescent, Hoyland, underwent a sponsored hair cut on August 4 in aid of the Little Princess Trust, which uses real hair to make wigs for children who have lost theirs due to cancer treatment.

In addition to donating her own locks to the trust, Millie aimed to raise £350 - the cost of making one child's wig. Her total raised so far is more than £700.

Mum Gemma, 34, said: "Millie's so grateful to all the family, friends and members of the public who have sponsored her and supported her.

"The Market Hotel in Elsecar has been fantastic for hosting the hair cut and helping raise money for the trust."
