Little Lottie Giran-Carter has hair so long, she can sit on it – and she absolutely loves it.
But the ten-year-old is prepared to lose most of it and go down to a short bob to raise money for children in India.
It was her own idea and with help from mum Sandra, she has launched her A Cut for a Cause campaign on GoFundMe.
Lottie, a year-six pupil at Swiss Gardens Primary School in Shoreham, said: “I absolutely love my hair and have had it trimmed only five times since I was born.
“My aim is to collect money to sponsor as many children as possible from the Saksham Foundation in Delhi, which is a charity organisation who help many children get an education, which I support fully.
“Once my hair is cut, I also intend to give it to The Little Princess Trust so a lovely wig can be made and donated to someone suffering from cancer. This is also very close to my heart as I lost my grandmother to cancer when I was only eight weeks old and I miss her dearly.”
Lottie will have her hair cut to shoulder length on July 20.
Dad Brett Carter said: “Lottie has previously organised a ‘brown envelopes’ campaign to gather essentials for the children at the foundation in Delhi.
“Lottie’s hair is currently sit-on length and approximately 16 inches will be donated.”
