Banbury area teacher, Sophie Evans, has launched a fundraising campaign for a children's charity and will be donating her hair to make wigs for children.

Sophie Evans, who teaches in Middleton Cheney, is raising money for the Little Princess Trust, which provides real hair wigs for children who have sadly lost their hair due to cancer or other conditions.

Sophie will be donating her hair to the charity along with any funds raised to help make real hair wigs.

She said: "Having the big hair cut of 12 plus inches is scary and I would love an incentive of raising money to meet my £500 target donation alongside my hair."

She has launched a Just Giving fundraising web page, and has raised £340 towards her £500 target.

She added: "The Little Princess Trust is a great charity doing brilliant things for young people who have lost their hair. A real hair wig can give a child so much confidence, and I hope I can help."
