BRAVE... Eloise Jefferies 

The generosity of one brave youngster has raised hundreds for children's cancer charity The little Princess Trust. Eight year old Eloise Jefferies had 15 inches of hair cut which she donated to make a wig for the Little Princess Trust.

Reeds Rains Estate Agents in Bedworth has supported Eloise by making donations and provided the venue where she had her luscious golden locks chopped off in front of family and friends.

Eloise’s dad, Phil Jefferies, Branch Manager at Reeds Rains in Bedworth, said: "We are very proud of her; she came up with the hair cut by herself, after hearing about it from a friend at school. She is chuffed she has been able to donate the hair to the charity, but she was a bit nervous at first as she had to have eight or nine inches cut off. She looks totally different and a lot older.”

The majority of the money was donated by friends, family and Reeds Rains staff who raised around £400 for the charity which will also help pay for the creation of more hair pieces.
