In what must go down as one of those amazing coincidences, two girls from Werrington, both called Gracie, decided to wave goodbye to their locks to raise money for charity within a few days of each.
Gracie Hales (7), pictured left, had her hair chopped off at Serenity Loves in Oundle Road as she reached her goal of raising £350 for the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
Mum Victoria said: “For a seven-year-old to choose to do this is a big thing. I’m beaming with pride.”
Gracie Morris (8) had her hair cut at home and has now raised nearly £400 for the Little Princess Trust, with both girls donating their hair to the charity which provides wigs for children suffering from cancer. Mum Shelley said: “I’m incredibly proud. For me it’s so selfless.”
