A Ripon boy who grew his hair for two years to help a charity which makes wigs for children has had his long golden locks cut off in front of his school friends.
Finlay MacNair, nine, a pupil at St Wilfrid’s Primary School had his hair cut on Monday afternoon and his hair will now be given to the Little Princess Trust, which provides wigs for children who have lost their hair through cancer treatment or other illnesses.
His mother, Jenny MacNair, said: “At more than 7in long, his hair was finally long enough to have it cut to send off to the charity.
“Finlay has also been fundraising as it costs the charity £350 to make the hair into a wig.”
The youngster has now raised more than £600 for the Little Princess Trust. Anyone wanting to make a donation can do so at Finlay’s fund raising web page, www.justgiving.com/FinlayMacnair
