Rainham Village Primary School pupils, Elsie Brown, 10, and younger sister Hetty, eight, held a series of fundraising events to raise £1,600 for the Little Princess Trust which provides real hair wigs for children suffering from hair loss.

Elsie was moved to take action after she came across a YouTube video of the charity making wigs for sick youngsters and encouraged her sister to also get involved.

Together they held a cake sale at their school in Upminster Road South, Rainham, and held a performance at Blythe School Theatre Dance in Freeman Way, Hornchurch.

The fundraising pair completed their series of events by cutting their hair at Rainham Methodist Church, Wennington Road, Rainham, on Sunday, June 3.

Dad Peter, 36, of St Andrews Avenue, Elm Park, said: “We are really proud [of them].”

Donations are still being counted by the family.
