Young Sleaford girl will cut hair to donate for cancer patient wigs
AN inspiring young girl from Sleaford is preparing to have her golden locks chopped for charity.
Seven-year-old Amy Saunby has been growing her hair for the last year with the intention of donating it to the Little Princess Trust who provide real hair wigs for cancer patients.
On March 16, Amy will have 10 inches cut off and in the run up to the big day, she is also fundraising money for Comic Relief.
Her mum, Stacey Roach, said: “It was my mum’s idea at first, she saw this advert on the internet for the Princess Trust and Amy said ‘I want to do that’.

“She now has 10 inches to have cut off. She’s excited and really looking forward to having it cut – with it being so long it has to be put up all the time.
“She’s a caring little girl and she understands what it’s all about. She’s done so well, I’m really proud of her.”
Amy, who attends St Botolph’s Church of England Primary School in Sleaford has had the support of fellow pupils along with family and friends in trying to reach her fundraising target of £300.
So far her online fundraising has reached £241, with more money pledged at her school.
Miss Roach, said: “She’s amazed at how much money she’s raised. Everyone’s been so kind.
“I’d like to thank everyone who has helped including my sister Lisa Robbins and Sainsbury’s in Sleaford.”
An afternoon fundraiser has been organised to take place at Darmon’s Bar in Sleaford on March 16 from 2pm which in addition to Amy’s hair cut, will include a raffle, face painting and cake stalls.
