A MOTHER and daughter team raised funds for charity and cut their hair for those who need it.

Emma Hodnett and her eight-year-old daughter, Beth donated over 2ft of hair between them to the Little Princess Trust and raised about £400 for Macmillan Cancer.

She said: “There have been quite a lot of people we know who have been diagnosed with cancer over the last couple of years and as part of their treatment they lose their hair.

“Me and Beth both had long hair and figured other people could use it better than we were. Everyone has been affected by cancer in some way or another.

“It went brilliant, it’s weird having short hair now but we got certificates and it was all for a good cause.”

Emma, who lives in Flint, said the pair came up with the idea about three years ago and have been growing their hair since.

They had it cut off where she works in Prestatyn and also held a cake sale to raise further funds.

She added: “I’m really proud of Beth. Everyone is self-conscious about the way they look and for her to put other people’s thoughts before her own looks makes me proud. She was really excited on the day and when it was over she said to me she needs to start growing it again, to do it all over again.”
