A GIRL who has spent her life growing her hair down to her waist has had it cut off for charity.
Megan Lloyd, 12, put her 22-inch long blonde hair under the scissors and raised more than £1,000 for Cancer Research UK.
The Horbury School pupil had only ever had trims on and has spent the past 12 years growing it.
But she has happily taken the plunge and had it cut above her shoulders to raise money for the charity, after losing her grandparents.
Her mum, Diane Clarke, said: “We would like to say a big well done to Megan.
“I’ve lost my parents to cancer and so Megan’s lost her grandparents – Cancer Research was the big one for us.”
Megan managed to raise more than £1,000 for the charity through sponsors, and has also donated her hair to the Little Princess Trust, which makes wigs for children with cancer.
The family thanked everyone who donated for their support.
