Deciding to lop her flowing locks for charity, Bromwyn Tempest is certainly not a girl to do things by half.

The Skegness schoolgirl braved the scissors this month to donate her hair to the Little Princess Trust.

Bromwyn had 12 inches of her tresses chopped off for the cancer charity which provides wigs for children undergoing treatment.

Previously tumbling down to her legs, Bromwyn’s hair now drops just below her shoulders.

As well as donating her hair for a wig, eight-year-old Bromwyn has also raised a whopping £463.50 for the trust.

Mum Ruth said: “Bromwyn found out about the charity last year when she was looking up ‘princess hair’ online as she has always wanted to be Rapunzel and hasn’t had anything other than a trim since she was two.

“I told her what charity did and she said she wanted to send them her hair.

“We made her wait as she is only young but she really put her foot down this year and decided she was doing it.

“Her dad Marc and I are extremely proud of her and although we will miss her long locks she is a true princess to us and the rest of her 

“She did not get upset afterwards and just said her hair will grow back.”

Staff at Skegness Pier, where Marc works as a technician, contributed to the total and grandparents Ann and Len collected donations from fellow members at Seacroft Golf Club.

A pupil at Skegness Junior Academy, Bromwyn is a Brownie, attends the Lisa Jay Stage Institute, loves animals and wants to be a vet. She has a sister Morgan, 12, and five-year-old brother Kieren.
