Girl's hair-raising charity mission.

AN eight-year-old Black Country schoolgirl is set to have her waistlength tresses chopped this week to help children with cancer.

Little Grace Cowley, a pupil at All Saints Primary School in West Bromwich, will be having 10 inches cut off her light-brown ponytail in aid of the Little Princess Trust.

The charity provides free wigs to children who have lost their hair after undergoing cancer treatment and other illnesses.

Grace's aunt Sawn Humphries, who works as a hairdressing lecturer at Sandwell College, will be wielding the scissors at the college's salon on Wednesday.

Grace is looking for sponsors for her stunt to help fund a wig, which cost around PS350 each to make.

To sponsor Grace, call the Bliss hairdressing salon at Sandwell College on 0121 667 5065.
