Lily (10) and Lana (6) Odedra, who live in Glinton, took the decision to have 11 inches trimmed off for the Little Princess Trust.

“Lily read something about children with cancer losing their hair and said she felt sorry for them,” said mum Bhavna. “I told her about the Little Princess Trust and how they make wigs for children when they lose their hair, and she said she would like to donate hers. And that inspired Lana to do the same.”

The girls held a lemonade sale outside their house before mum set up a just giving page.
