A six-year-old schoolgirl is one of a handful of youngsters who has had her long locks chopped in aid of charity.
Support is mounting for The Little Princess Trust and a number of girls in the town have been growing their hair to have it cut so it can be used to make a wig for a child who has lost their own hair through cancer treatment.
Kaitlin had her hair chopped at Beehive Hair and Beauty Salon in the town centre on Wednesday February 19.
The six-year-old is one of many young girls who have faced the chop for the good cause and she had more than 10 inches of her hair lopped off at the salon in Ivy Terrace.
Anya Vitler, nine, also helped raise funds for the Little Princess Trust.
The Herald reported last week how as well as donating her hair she has also raised around £450 in sponsorship, with a raffle and cake sale also boosting funds.
The Little Princess Trust also supports children with other conditions that result in hair loss, the most common being alopecia. Despite being set up to help children with cancer, the trust supplies children that do not have a cancer diagnosis with one wig.
