A SWINDON community support officer will chop 14 inches off her hair to support a charity which creates wigs for children with cancer.

PCSO Danielle Hindmarsh, who works in the Moredon area, decided to raise money for the organisation because her family has been affected.

She said: “I’m supporting the Little Princess Trust because they do some amazing things.

“They not only create beautiful real hair wigs for children who have lost their hair through cancer treatments or other conditions, but they also fund organisations involved in researching the causes of paediatric cancer.

“Cancer is something that is affecting my family at the moment, so I understand how important their research is.”

As well as donating her hair PCSO Hindmarsh hopes to raise £550, which is the cost of making each wig.

She added: “I’m hopeful that they will be able to use my hair donation to make a child happy and give them a boost confidence.”

She had originally planned to cut her hair on March 31, but due to the lockdown it had to be delayed.

She plans to have the chop this Saturday, July 4.
