A six-year-old from Abbots Langley is cutting her hair for the first time in memory of her friend Kaiya Patel.
Amba Di Pinto is donating 18 inches of her hair to the Little Princess Trust on May 30 after seeing her close friends battle with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia.
Amba met Kaiya whilst at dance school says mum Sharmee, who has previously cut her hair for the charity.
She said: “Kaiya’s story meant a lot to us parents as we had to explain everything to our children. Amba decided she would have her first ever haircut in memory of her.”
Amba is also raising money for Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) where Kaiya was being treated, but sadly passed away in January following a brave fight.
Sharmee added: “I’m super proud of her and it would be nice to see what we’ve raised reach the 1,000 mark. It’s really nice to see her being so selfless and thinking other people.
“The most important part of this is to raise awareness for them (Little Princess Trust) and a chance for another little girl (or boy) to have hair.”
Hairshare in Abbots Langley high street will be cutting Amba’s hair.
