A FLINTSHIRE woman who challenged herself to 'give something back' has raised hundreds for charity.

Samantha Magness, from Buckley, has decided to raise £550 and donate 13 inches of her own hair to the Little Princess Trust.

This will allow one wig to be made for a young child who is battling cancer.

Having faced the chop on July 31, Samantha surpassed her fundraising target and brought in over £700 for the charity.

She said: "It went really well."

Samantha previously told the Leader: "There are lots of children and young people who suffer and battle cancer. It affects their self-confidence and esteem.

"I know people who have been through their own personal cancer battle so I just thought it would be a nice thing to do."
