A generous seven-year-old girl from Sidcup has cut off her beloved long blonde hair to be made into wigs for poorly children.

The kind-hearted youngster also rallied around family and friends for sponsorship for the chop and has, so-far, raised £1,077 for the charity.

Lennie's mum, Kerrie Whitlock, aged 30, said: "I'm sad that she will no longer have her long blonde hair but at the end of the day its just hair and many children don't get a choice or say in losing their hair.

"I'm so incredibly proud of her I can't even put in words - she's done it all herself.

"Lennie is so pleased with her hair and by how much she's raised.
